Welcome from the Scientific Directors

Dr Dominic Harrington

I am delighted to welcome you to the GSTS Innovation Academy and to our inaugural scientific symposium. Clinical science is part of the fabric of our organisation and today twelve of our senior scientists will share with you recent service innovations around the broad themes of Child Health, Keeping People Healthy, Infectious Diseases and Next Generation Diagnostics. We will hear how innovations, developed and implemented within our laboratories, support our clinical colleagues in the delivery of patient care. Clinical science has been a powerful driver of developments in the provision of healthcare for decades and many of our staff have contributed to current practice. The Innovation Academy aims to create an environment supportive of innovation, quality and the development of our future scientific leaders. In short, we know that good science equals good medicine.

Prof Roy Sherwood

I am pleased to announce the first GSTS Innovation Academy symposium, a day that will offer you great networking opportunities and scientific collaboration, as well as a chance to listen to a range of experts within the clinical science field. We are lucky to have presenters from across GSTS laboratories, discussing current trends and topical developments in areas such as expanded newborn screening, vitamin B12 deficiency, HIV drug resistance and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. The aim of these talks is to not only to share knowledge within the group, but to stimulate discussion around the current topics of the day. We hope you find the day interesting and useful, and invite you to look out for the next Innovation Academy event.

The address for the venue is as follows:

Guy’s Hospital,
St Thomas Street,
London
SE1 9RT

‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality
Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.
Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes
Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.
'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.
Advancing Synthetic Biology
Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.
Preparing for Potential Zika Outbreaks
Experts at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) are developing tools to monitor the spread of the Zika virus and are conducting research to gather more solid data to better assess the risks associated with the infection.
What do Banana Peels and Human Skin Have in Common?
Human skin and banana peels have something in common: they produce the same enzyme when attacked. By studying fruit, researchers have come up with an accurate method for diagnosing the stages of this form of skin cancer.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules
Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.
