The Scientist’s Channel enables scientists to present their work and share innovations and expertise by broadcasting to a global audience through a fully moderated, trusted and independent platform. In this article, discover six of the latest cancer research videos published on The Scientists' Channel.
Dr. Theodossis Theodossiou discusses his team’s cutting-edge research into curing cancer with photodynamic therapy (PDT). PDT is an exciting anti-cancer treatment, currently used clinically. It works by using light, a photo-activatable drug and oxygen to kill cancer, where the specificity of the treatment depends on which wavelength of light is applied. In this video, Dr. Theodossiou describes how his team are working to improve the efficiency and accuracy of PDT through a variety of methods.
Dr. Aleksandra Dukic, postdoctoral researcher, Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital, describes a novel target for inhibiting glioblastoma cancer invasion into surrounding brain tissue and the importance of this work in addressing the need for innovative therapeutics to combat this aggressive cancer. Hear how the culture and analysis of glioblastoma patient-derived cells are vital to her work.
Tony Dickherber, SLAS Committee member, and Program Director at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), explores emerging technologies in cancer diagnostics and monitoring, including high-speed, high-throughput, multiplex assays, and how they contribute to developing effective cancer treatments.
In this video, Dr. Sara Tolaney explains how her team uses digital droplet PCR to assess for PICK-3CA and ESR-1 mutations, highlights the importance of obtaining real-time genomic information, and discusses what they are hoping for in future research.
In this video, Prof. Paul Hofman outlines how his team use the Oncomine Tumor Mutation Load (TML) Assay from Thermo Fisher Scientific for next-generation sequencing (NGS) when evaluating tumour mutational burden (TMB).
