The UK’s largest Cancer Conference ran this year from 3-5th November in Glasgow. Ludwig Oxford Branch Director Prof. Xin Lu chaired a session on “Emerging technologies for the study of cancer biology”. This session covered recent advances in the areas of Nanopore sequencing technology and the generation of advanced ex vivo 3D models by Prof Hagan Bayley (Department of Chemistry, Oxford), and nanotechnology for biosensing and drug delivery by Prof. Molly Stevens (Imperial College, London). Ludwig Oxford’s Chunxiao Song presented his novel TAPS technology for DNA methylation detection. This innovative method is now being tested for the measurement of epigenetic signatures within liquid biopsy samples from cancer patients with the aim of earlier cancer detection.
