    Brain cancer diagnosis and therapy

    Look for blood biomarkers using the NALIA system (see Project 4) to see whether they can provide early diagnosis of brain cancer, particularly glioblastoma, and also monitoring of therapy.

    We will construct iron nanoparticles to target the brain tumour cells because they should permit the application of the highly economical Electrical Impedance Imaging Technology and permit thermal ablation of the tumour by application of an external energy source to targetted nanoparticles injected directly into the tumour mass.


        1) Diagnostic microarray for early diagnosis and monitoring of brain tumours.
        2) Economical imaging of these tumours.
        3) Thermal ablation of tumours ("I'd rather have a needle than a knife").
