In 2016, the Holyoake lab published two very high profile papers, one in collaboration with Prof Tony Whetton (Manchester Precision Medicine Institute, University of Manchester) and one in collaboration with Dr David Vetrie (Institute of Cancer Science, University of Glasgow). More information about these projects is available via the University of Glasgow website:
