About this course

The Centre for Comparative and Clinical Anatomy (CCCA) is a recently formed unit which replaces the previous Department of Anatomy. Research within the centre is internationally recognised and is focused in the areas of cancer biology, developmental biology and neuroendocrinology.

CCCA has excellent facilities, including the newly refurbished Vesalius Centre which houses a state-of-the-art clinical anatomy suite that provides opportunities for using unfixed human tissue for both research and training purposes. This new centre provides a wide range of opportunities for translational research (for example, in the design and evaluation of medical implants or surgical procedures), strengthening links with the Schools of Clinical Medicine and Veterinary Science. The centre also has access to facilities such as the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility.

Course Modules

Research groups
Cancer Biology Research studies the dynamic interaction of cancer cells with normal (non-cancerous) epithelial cells and fibroblasts. Cancer cells surround and attack normal epithelial cells, whereas fibroblasts restrict distribution and movement of cancer cells; the cause and consequence of these interactions are investigated.

Developmental Biology Research investigates the molecular mechanisms that underlie macrophage migration in vivo, with particular interested in how these immune cells prioritise competing cues, e.g. damage signals released from wounds, as well as the guidance cues that direct their developmental dispersal during embryogenesis and the presence of bacterial infection.

Neuroendocrinology Research is concentrated in two main areas which include the  neuroendocrine mechanisms underlying the control of fertility and the neurobiology of stress responses. A multi-animal model strategy is used in combination with hypothalamic and pituitary cell lines to study the topics from in-vivo systems to molecular level.
