Investigating the communication between cancer cells and cells in the tumour microenvironment to improve our understanding of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms and identify new targets for cancer therapy

It is well-established that the molecular mechanisms controlling gene expression are disrupted in cancer cells and work in this area has laid the foundations for targeted cancer therapies. We are interested in the regulatory pathways that control cell proliferation and cell migration and the events that disrupt this control in multiple types of cancer.

Nanoparticle synthesis and application in magnetic field hyperthermia for cancer therapy

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Magnetic field hyperthermia (MFH) is currently undergoing clinical trials for use in humans. The research to date has shown the effectiveness of the approach in cells and animal models and the initial results from human trials are promising. Read more

Cancer: Understanding the immunosuppressive role of fibroblast and macrophages in Breast cancer

Oncolytic viruses (OVs) preferentially infect and kill cancer cells, and their clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against a number of different cancers. The most clinically advanced OV is a genetically engineered herpes simplex virus (T-VEC) which expresses GMCSF to aid the development of anti-tumour immune responses; T-VEC is approved for the treatment of metastatic melanoma.

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

Targeting dormant cancer cells in myeloma

Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer and remains essentially incurable. Chemotherapy is effective at reducing tumour and extends survival, but it never fully eradicates disease, so patients face inevitable relapse. Read more

Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis. Read more
