Dr Sam AuMicrofluidic Platforms for Investigating and Isolating Circulating Tumour Cell Clusters, with Dr Sam Au, Imperial College London
Multicellular aggregates of circulating tumour cells (CTC clusters) are potent initiators of distant organ metastases. Much is still unknown about their a) behaviour in the body, b) value as predictive/prognostic biomarkers and c) potential as therapeutic targets. The study of CTC clusters is hindered by challenges associated with isolating these rare aggregates from blood and observing their behaviour in physiological environments. Here I present microfluidic platforms designed to address both challenges.

Professor Michael DustinNanoscale analysis of immune cell communication, with Professor Michael L. Dustin updated
Professor Dustin was trained in Tim Springer’s lab at Harvard Medical School and Stuart Kornfeld’s lab at Washington University in St Louis. He started his Lab at Washington University in St Louis using supported lipids bilayers to study dynamics of the immunological synapse. Work at NYU School of Medicine focused on in vivo analysis of immune cell function in multiple tissues with a focus on tolerance, cancer and infection models. In Oxford he has focused on the immune T cell immunological synapse and the formation of nanoscale extracellular vesicles. This is a unique form of communication that allows the T cell to send out particles with a combination of antigen specificity and effector function. The system is also amenable to analysis by nanofabrication methods. In work started at NYU and continued at Oxford. Professor Dustin has used 3D nano position of T cell receptor ligands to determine the role of phosphatase exclusion in control of T cell responses.
