2004-05 Cancer Research - In vitro model for the study of liver metastasis from cancer of the colon

Dr Bird of Sheffield University is the first researcher in the UK to use human tissue models for the study of liver metastasis, where cells from an original cancer tumour spread to the liver and new tumours...

2004-05 Cancer Research - Improved cell culture methods for anti-cancer drug development

The LDF has been funding Professor Ian Cree of the Translational Oncology Research Centre, Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth, to develop improved cell culture techniques for testing the efficacy of...

2004-05 Infertility - In vitro study of human male sperm cells

Funding of Professor Chris Barratt and Dr Ian Brewis continued for their research into the study of human male infertility at Birmingham Women’s Hospital. During previous research funded by the LDF, the...

2004-05 Brain Research - MEG brain imaging to study visual attention

We provided a research grant to Dr Kristin Pammer and Dr Piers Cornelissen at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne using magnetoencephalography (MEG) brain imaging in human volunteers as an alternative...

2004-05 Brain Research - MEG and auditory processing

Drs Caroline Witton and Paul Furlong at the Neurosciences Research Institute, Aston University, have been funded by the LDF to conduct experiments expected to highlight the redundancy of animal models...

2004-05 Brain Research - Central nervous system processing of human gut sensation

Lord Dowding Fund scientists have developed a brain imaging technique to non-invasively record nerve cell activity in the human brain without the limitations encountered with previous techniques. The technique...

2004-05 Brain Research - Design of neurotoxicity assays using human tissues

The study of substances which are poisonous to human nerves presents a challenge because of the complexity of the central nervous system (CNS), consisting of the brain and spinal cord. The distinct areas...

2004-05 Brain Research - LDF neuroscience facility

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is important in the development of research into mental health disorders. The technique enables visualisation of brain cortex function, in response to physical...
