Welcome to Repository@Hull

The Repository@Hull is intended to be an Open Access showcase for the published research output of the university. Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided.

Notch signalling is a potential resistance mechanism of progenitor cells within patient‐derived prostate cultures following ROS‐inducing treatments (2019)
Journal Article
Packer, J. R., Hirst, A. M., Droop, A. P., Adamson, R., Simms, M. S., Mann, V. M., …Maitland, N. J. (2019).
