Dr James Whitworth (Dept of Medical Genetics) and Dr Tim Williams (Dept of Veterinary Medicine) have been awarded a grant for £35,765 by The Urology Foundation to investigate urinary extracellular vesicles as a source of biomarkers for the early detection of heritable renal cancers. If successful, this could lead to the development of non-invasive screening tests for at risk individuals which would reduce the need for these patients to undergo regular advanced imaging (MRI) to screen for disease and prevent late disease presentations.
