Congratulations to Joshua Bull, Felix Jackson, Eoghan Mulholland and Lauren Murphy who have been awarded OxCODE funds to attend this year’s Early Detection of Cancer conference in Oregon.

The Early Detection of Cancer conference runs this year from 18th-20th October 2022 in Portland, Oregon, USA. The mission of the Oxford Centre for Early Cancer Detection (OxCODE) Travel Award is to raise the profile of Oxford’s early detection research by competitively funding the attendance of early career researchers (students and post-doctoral researchers) at this major annual early detection conference.

After peer review by the OxCODE Operational Group, funds were allocated to the following people:

  • Dr Joshua Bull (Byrne group, Mathematical Institute) “Mathematical tools for spatial analysis of multiplex medical images”
  • Felix Jackson (Song group, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research) “cfTAPS provides multimodal information for early cancer detection”
  • Dr Eoghan Mulholland (Leedham group, Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics) “Caught in the act: Cell communities in colorectal dysplasia transformation”
  • Lauren Murphy (Psaila group, MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine) “Detection of cancer cell-derived DNA in platelets improves the sensitivity of screening for pre-cancerous and overt malignancies”

Congratulations to these awardees and thank you to all applicants for their submissions.
