Investigating the biomolecular complexity of drug-induced cardiotoxicity by fingerprinting single cell and cardiac spheroid mass spectral information using Time-of-flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS)

Project: Research Studentship - Internally Allocated

Project Details

Description

The aim of this project is to significantly advance upon ongoing efforts in understanding drug-induced cardiotoxicity not only at the single cell level but in a multicellular model that may better reflect the cellular microenvironment of the heart. Extending studies to assess the metabolite changes in the multicellular environment in response to cancer therapeutics may reveal events integral to toxicity which may lead to new knowledge to develop ways to minimise or prevent cellular toxicity in the cardiac niche.
