AMSBIO, a provider of cutting-edge life science technologies and services for accelerating discovery in cancer research, has continued its sponsorship of the annual poster prize at the Beatson International Cancer Conference (7th -10th July 2013).
The two winners of the Poster Prize for the best presented and most interesting posters, were this year named as Dr Thomas R Cox and co-researchers** for their work on ‘Deep proteomic analysis of the hypoxic secretome lysyl oxidase as a critical mediator of metastatic lesion formation in bone’, and Dr Jean Albrengues & co-researchers*** for their work on ‘Production of LIF cytokine by cancer cells and fibroblasts contributes to the establishment of a pro-invasive tumour microenvironment’.
As one of Cancer Research UK’s core-funded institutes - the Beatson Institute www.beatson.gla.ac.uk/ carries out a programme of world-class science directed at understanding key aspects of cancer cell behaviour, and try to translate these discoveries into new therapies and diagnostic/prognostic tools to help cancer patients. The Institute benefits from close interactions with the University of Glasgow, including strong links with the University’s Institute of Cancer Sciences.
AMSBIO is a rapidly growing company focused on the supply and development of products and technology for cancer research with emphasise on apoptosis, DNA damage and repair, and cancer cell function and behavior. AMSBIO supplies focused research products for cancer research that allow researchers to study cancer cell function and behavior including in angiogenesis, cell invasion and PARP and PARG research. Together with specifically designing assays for lead compound and genotoxic screening based on DNA damage and repair and cancer cell behavior, AMSBIO is establishing itself as a leading international provider of cancer research tools and services.
