Mimicking the tumour microenvironment…

Last month, we published a nice paper in the British Journal of Haematology. It was very productive collaboration between King’s College London and Cardiff University. Emma Hamilton and Laurence Pearce did some lovely experiments comparing different types of co-culture and their effects on CLL cells. The abstract is available online here and the reference is below. Well done to Emma on her first publication 🙂

Hamilton E, Pearce L, Morgan L, Robinson S, Ware V, Brennan P, Thomas NS, Yallop D, Devereux S, Fegan C, Buggins AG, Pepper C. Mimicking the tumour microenvironment: three different co-culture systems induce a similar phenotype but distinct proliferative signals in primary chronic lymphocytic leukaemia cells.
