SULSA Student Hollie Vase presents at Experimental Biology 2012
SULSA Student Hollie Vase (University of Aberdeen) had 2 abstracts accepted for the Experiment Biology meeting 2012, San Diego, CA.
The first abstract, "Precancerous and Cancerous Predictive Signatures Using a Custom Designed Novel Gene Expression Assay" was presented as an oral presentation.
The talk highlighted the use of the GenomeLab GeXP technology (Beckman) to identify gene signatures which distinguish normal, adenoma and carcinoma tissue and identified cellular processes showing abnormal activity associated with pathological status.
The second abstract, "Interrogating Therapeutic Manipulation of the Endocannabinoid System in Human Colon" was presented as a poster.
The poster showed how a custom designed multiplex gene expression assay, the Endocannabinoid multiplex (hECSplex) was used to identify changes in gene expression profiles of human colon explants treated with either cannabidiol or tetrahydrocannabinol. Preliminary results indicate that both of the therapeutics regulate endocannabinoid receptor expression.
The abstracts can be read in full in The FASEB Journal
