In vitro tissue microarrays for quick and efficient spheroid characterisation (2017)
Journal Article
Ivanov, D. P., & Grabowska, A. M. (2018). In vitro tissue microarrays for quick and efficient spheroid characterisation. Slas Discovery, 23(2), https://doi.org/10.1177/2472555217740576

Three-dimensional in vitro microphysiological cultures, such as spheroids and organoids, promise increased patient relevance and therapeutic predictivity compared to reductionist cell monolayers. However, high-throughput characterisation techniques f... Read More about In vitro tissue microarrays for quick and efficient spheroid characterisation.

Control of aggregation temperatures in mixed and blended cytocompatible thermoresponsive block co-polymer nanoparticles (2017)
Journal Article

Breast cancer induced nociceptor aberrant growth and collateral sensory axonal branching (2017)
Journal Article
Austin, M., Elliott, L., Nicolaou, N., Grabowska, A. M., & Hulse, R. P. (2017). Breast cancer induced nociceptor aberrant growth and collateral sensory axonal branching. Oncotarget, 8(44), https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.20609

The tumour and neuron interaction has a significant impact upon disease progression and the patients quality of life. In breast cancer patients, it is known that there is an interaction between the tumour microenvironment and the sensory neurons to i...

Multicomponent analysis of the tumour microenvironment reveals low CD8 T cell number, low stromal caveolin-1 and high tenascin-C and their combination as significant prognostic markers in non-small cell lung cancer (2017)
Journal Article
Onion, D., Isherwood, M., Shridhar, N., Xenophontos, M., Craze, M. L., Day, L. J., …Grabowska, A. M. (in press). Multicomponent analysis of the tumour microenvironment reveals low CD8 T cell number, low stromal caveolin-1 and high tenascin-C and their combination as significant prognostic markers in non-small cell lung cancer. Oncotarget, 9(2), 1760-1771. https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.18880

The complex interplay of the tumour microenvironment (TME) and its role in disease progression and response to therapy is poorly understood. The majority of studies to date focus on individual components or molecules within the TME and so lack the po...

HOXC8 regulates self-renewal, differentiation and transformation of breast cancer stem cells (2017)
Journal Article
Shah, M., Cardenas, R., Wang, B., Persson, J., Mongan, N. P., Grabowska, A. M., & Allegrucci, C. (2017). HOXC8 regulates self-renewal, differentiation and transformation of breast cancer stem cells. Molecular Cancer, 16(38), https://doi.org/10.1186/s12943-017-0605-z

Background: Homeobox genes are master regulators of cell fate during embryonic development and their expression is altered in cancer. By regulating the balance between cell proliferation and differentiation, they maintain homeostasis of normal tissue...

Spheroid arrays for high-throughput single-cell analysis of spatial patterns and biomarker expression in 3D (2017)
Journal Article
Ivanov, D. P., & Grabowska, A. M. (2017). Spheroid arrays for high-throughput single-cell analysis of spatial patterns and biomarker expression in 3D. Scientific Reports, 7(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep41160

We describe and share a device, methodology and image analysis algorithms, which allow up to 66 spheroids to be arranged into a gel-based array directly from a culture plate for downstream processing and analysis. Compared to processing individual sa... Read More about Spheroid arrays for high-throughput single-cell analysis of spatial patterns and biomarker expression in 3D.
