New method to study the behaviour of soluble molecules in tissues

New method to study the behaviour of soluble molecules in tissues

Publication Research

Researchers at the Kennedy Institute and the University of York develop a new imaging approach that offers superior resolution to track the movement of soluble proteins in tissues.

BBSRC New Investigator Award for Dr Audrey Gérard

BBSRC New Investigator Award for Dr Audrey Gérard

We would like to congratulate Dr Audrey Gérard on her three-year Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) New Investigator Award. The award will allow Audrey to examine how the behaviour of killer T cells is coordinated to optimise immunity against pathogens and tumour growth.

Geometry is key to T-cell triggering

Geometry is key to T-cell triggering

Kennedy researchers and Columbia University engineers discover geometric underpinnings of T-cell stimulation through precise engineering of T-cell receptor geometry, building a 3D nanofabricated biomimetic surface that simulates the key components of an antigen-presenting cell.

Oxford scientists discover key factor that ‘alerts’ stem cells to accelerate healing of multiple tissues

Oxford scientists discover key factor that ‘alerts’ stem cells to accelerate healing of multiple tissues

Researchers at the Kennedy Institute, University of Oxford have found that a single administration of a molecule accelerated healing of multiple tissues when administered after or even before injury.
