Investigating the role of cell fate regulator ASCL1 in driving and maintaining lethal neuroendocrine castrate resistant prostate cancer (2022)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Bruce, I., Pang, L., Poole, A., & Fraser, J. (2022, November). Investigating the role of cell fate regulator ASCL1 in driving and maintaining lethal neuroendocrine castrate resistant prostate cancer. Poster presented at Society for Endocrinology BES 2022, Harrogate

Neuroendocrine castrate resistant prostate cancer (NE-CRPC) is a lethal CRPC subtype that arises as prostate cancer cells transdifferentiate to neuroendocrine cells, evading the potent selective pressure of androgen deprivation therapies (ADT). Curre... Read More about Investigating the role of cell fate regulator ASCL1 in driving and maintaining lethal neuroendocrine castrate resistant prostate cancer.

Radiotherapy remains an important treatment modality in nearly two thirds of all cancers, including the primary curative or palliative treatment of breast cancer. Unfortunately, largely due to tumor heterogeneity, tumor radiotherapy response rates ca... Read More about Precision Medicine and the Role of Biomarkers of Radiotherapy Response in Breast Cancer.

Scientific Reports, 9, Article 19076 (2019). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-55665-y

Neuroendocrine prostate cancer (NEPC) is thought to arise as prostate adenocarcinoma cells transdifferentiate into neuroendocrine (NE) cells to escape potent anti-androgen therapies however, the exact molecular events accompanying NE transdifferentia...

Stroke causes severe neuronal damage as disrupted cerebral blood flow starves neurons of oxygen and glucose. The hypoxia inducible factors (HIF-1α and HIF-2α) orchestrate oxygen homeostasis and regulate specific aspects of hypoxic adaptation. Here we...

Preferential activation of HIF-2 adaptive mechanisms in neuronal-like cells in response to hypoxia (2017)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Fraser, J., Baudel, M., Rae, M., Darlison, M., & Poole, A. (2017, April). Preferential activation of HIF-2 adaptive mechanisms in neuronal-like cells in response to hypoxia. Poster presented at British Neuroscience Association - festival of neuroscience 2017

Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Blockage, or occlusion, of cerebral arteries causes irreversible neuronal damage as disrupted blood flow starves neurones of oxygen and glucose. The hypoxia inducible factors (HIFs) are mas...

The expression of the chloride co-transporters NKCC1 and KCC2 is reversed in the penumbra following (2017)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Baudel, M., Rae, M., Fraser, J., & Poole, A. (2017). The expression of the chloride co-transporters NKCC1 and KCC2 is reversed in the penumbra following. In Brain and Neuroscience: BNA 2017 Festival of Neuroscience: Abstract Book

Stroke is one of the major causes of death and disability worldwide. The harm caused by the interruption of blood flow to the brain unfolds in the subsequent hours and days, so it is critical to identify new therapeutic targets that could reduce neur...

Chloride co-transporters as possible therapeutic targets for stroke (2016)
Journal Article

Stroke is one of the major causes of death and disability worldwide. The major type of stroke is an ischaemic one, which is caused by a blockage that interrupts blood flow to the brain. There are currently very few pharmacological strategies to red... Read More about Chloride co-transporters as possible therapeutic targets for stroke.
