The gastrointestinal tract is lined with a single sheet of epithelium that is replaced every 4-5 days. The base of a flask-shaped structured called the crypt is where the gastrointestinal stem cells are found. These divide to form daughter cells that travel up the crypt to replace these cells. Professor Simon Leedham's current research focuses on the cell-signaling pathways that control intestinal stem cells and the dysregulation of these pathways in cancer.
How does our body detect and destroy foreign invaders? Why does the body attack itself in diseases such as diabetes? And what is cancer immunotherapy? This and other questions are answered in a new animation released today by the Davis and Cornall groups, the two labs worked together with Oxford Sparks aimed at school students to introduce the main players of the immune system and some of the latest research in fighting diseases such as cancer.
Nearly 3 million people are co-infected with hepatitis C and HIV. Effective preventive strategies targeting both viruses are needed. Jenner Investigators, including Professor Lucy Dorrell have published a study in Frontiers in Immunology showing that a two-in-one vaccine regimen employing serologically distinct adenovirus vectors elicited strong immune responses to both pathogens without adverse effects
