Seeing is believing – how new robotic surgery trials hope to provide a leap forward for head and neck cancer surgery Peter Rhys Evans One of the key attributes of a surgeon is to have steady hands and for head and neck surgeons this is of critical importance given the sensitive areas of the body […]
How a robot has become indispensable in the search for a new viral/drug combination for head and neck cancer Dr Joan Kyula and Dr Victoria Roulstone Researchers are used to complexity, buy cialis it’s what they’re trained to do, but two scientists, who were carrying out a large scale project for Oracle, were grateful for […]
Professor Uwe Oelfke Finding new ways to improve the accuracy of head and neck cancer treatment so that healthy cells are protected is now at the forefront of research. As we reported in our Winter newsletter, and work is due to start shortly using the new £10 million MR Linac machine on a pre-clinical head […]
Dr Malin Pedersen Like all other cancers, cost thyroid cancer is a disease that affects the DNA, adiposity or genetic code of cells.

Dr Hind Hafsi Whilst radiotherapy is an effective treatment for all sorts of cancers, help it is also possible for some cancer cells to repair themselves after being targeted with radiation. So, if it was possible to use a drug combination which prevents this ‘self-repair’ it would mean radiotherapy could lead to 100% cell death. […]
Professor Caroline Springer & Dr Serena Thomasina Ghelfi Finding specific drug therapies that can selectively target cancer cells has been the focus for a range of cancer research projects in recent years. A big leap forward was achieved when scientists discovered ways of targeting the genes within cancer cells to effectively ‘turn off’ the cancer. […]
