Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer

Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Targeting cancer stem cells: Selective culture method and drug search

Cancer stem cells are a small population of cells in tumours maintaining the tumorigenic capacity (1). They are featured as quiescent (i.e., dormant), in contrast to the majority of cancer cells that actively proliferate under the aberrant regulation. Read more

Regulation of asymmetric cell division in brain cancer stem cells

Glioblastoma is the most lethal brain cancer in adults. Its poor prognosis is a result of aggressive tumour growth, therapeutic resistance, and tumour heterogeneity at the cellular and genetic level. Read more

Novel therapeutics in breast, pancreatic and colorectal cancers

The host laboratories based in the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, School of Biosciences and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Cardiff have developed two novel classes of therapeutic agent for oncology that target two distinct cancer cell pathways. Read more

Prostate cancer signalling to the bone micro-environment - from molecular characterization to potential novel therapies.

About the Project. Prostate cancer is responsible for over 52,000 cancer diagnoses within the UK per annum, and is the most common cancer in males, accounting for 27% of all new cancer cases diagnosed within men in 2016-2017. Read more

Impact of dietary components on the intestinal stem cell homeostasis and cancer risk

Bowel cancer is the 4th most common and second biggest cause of cancer mortality. Of the ~14,000 new cases of bowel cancer each year in the UK it is estimated 50% could have been prevented through healthy lifestyle changes. For example, there is strong evidence for a high fibre diet preventing bowel cancer.

Single Cell Biology of Hematopoietic Stem- and Progenitor Cells in Blood Cancer and Ageing

The focus of the Nerlov laboratory is combining single cell biology (single cell RNAseq, ATACseq and functional analysis) with advanced mouse genetics to study hematopoietic stem– and progenitor cells in normal development and during ageing. Read more

Institute of Cancer Sciences

 The Institute of Cancer Sciences is part of a national centre of excellence in the fight against cancer. We carry out a programme of world-class science directed at understanding the molecular changes that cause cancer. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of new integrin-targeting drugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
The integrins are a family of transmembrane receptors which mediate cell-cell and cell-ECM adhesion, and signalling across the cell membrane involved in pathways controlling cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, cell survival and apoptosis. Read more
