Numerical Simulation of a Scanning Illumination System for Deep Tissue Fluorescence Imaging (2019)
Journal Article
Zhang, Q., Grabowska, A. M., Clarke, P. A., & Morgan, S. P. (2019). Numerical Simulation of a Scanning Illumination System for Deep Tissue Fluorescence Imaging. Journal of Imaging, 5(11), https://doi.org/10.3390/jimaging5110083

he spatial resolution and light detected in fluorescence imaging for small animals are limited by light scattering, absorption and autofluorescence. To address this, novel near-infrared fluorescent contrast agents and imaging configurations have been...

Sonic Hedgehog Ligand: A Role in Formation of a Mesenchymal Niche in Human Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma (2019)
Journal Article
Saini, F., Argent, R. H., & Grabowska, A. (2019). Sonic Hedgehog Ligand: A Role in Formation of a Mesenchymal Niche in Human Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma. Cells, 8(5), 1-15. https://doi.org/10.3390/cells8050424

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is characterised by desmoplasia, thought to support progression and chemotherapeutic resistance. The Hedgehog pathway is known to play an important role in this cancer. While the upregulation of Sonic hedgehog...

Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids (2019)
Journal Article
Tchoryk, A., Taresco, V., Argent, R., Ashford, M. B., Gellert, P., Stolnik, S., …Garnett, M. C. (2019). Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids. Bioconjugate Chemistry, 30(5), 1371-1384. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.bioconjchem.9b00136

Animal models are effective for assessing tumour localisation of nanosystems, but difficult to use for studying penetration beyond the vasculature. Here, we have used well-characterised HCT116 colorectal cancer spheroids to study the effect of nanopa... Read More about Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids.
