    The differentiation state of CD8+ T cells is an important determinant of their ability to eradicate tumours and infection; progressive differentiation appears to lead to a decreased effectiveness. Therefore the development of effective immunotherapies depends on a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underlie T cell differentiation. Several key cell surface markers are down regulated as differentiation progresses so we can define CD8+ T cells into 4 main subsets (see Fig. 1). Each subset is generated by a specific transcriptional programme. Our hypothesis is that miRNAs are important in this process of T cell differentation. If you take a cancer patient???s cells, expand in vitro, and re-infuse to the patient, the phenotype of the T cell will determine its efficacy in vivo. We have found that we can pre-condition T cells using the cytokine IL21 to have a more favourable phenotype than using the traditionally used cytokine IL2 (data not shown). We aim to explore this cytokine driven differentiation process by examining the miRNAs involved.

    Since the first discovery of quasicrystals by mathematicians in the 1960s, quasicrystalline patterns which possess unusual symmetric orders have become an issue among mathematicians. Observation of 5-fold crystal symmetry in metal alloys in 1984 has attracted other scientists. Penrose tiling is the simplest quasicrystal comprised of only pentagon motifs. Although quasicrystals have been observed in alloys and soft matter states (polymers, colloids), no one has yet successfully generated full molecular quasicrystals. Only small pieces of molecular Penrose tiling have been reported. We are working on this challenge by using molecules with 5-fold symmetry as molecular ???tiles??? to create 2-dimensional molecular Penrose tilings. Alignment of the tiles is the key to creating the quasicrystalline pattern. Possible candidates as tiles which must be synthetically accessible are croconate and its derivatives, macrocycles such as campestarene and supramolecules such as cucurbituril. The techniques of coordination and supramolecular chemistry will direct the ordering of the tiles. After deposition of the synthesised tiles on substrates, surface imaging (STM and AFM) and analytical techniques (XPS, LEED, GI-SAXS) will be used to investigate the resulting films.
