Prof. Mike Threadgill (PI) and Dr. Amit Nathubhai (Co-PI) have been awarded a grant from the charity, AICR (Association of International Cancer Research) to support their research towards the inhibition of Tankyrase and its link to cancer. They have recently supported a fund raising event called “Smarty Pants” created by AICR. Students from the University of Bath including those from the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology (Olivia Stillwagon and Simon Underwood), as well as Dr Amit Nathubhai and Prof. Mike Threadgill took part in an abseiling event down a 200ft descent off the Avon Gorge. Over £4000 has been raised.
