Cancer: Characterization of EGFR signaling activated by the endothelium in the process of breast cancer metastasis to the brain

The Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is important in normal physiology regulating epithelial development and homeostasis. In cancer, deregulation resulting from mutation, amplification or transcriptional upregulation promotes tumorigenesis. Read more

Assessing the molecular mechanisms by which Cathepsin V promotes breast cancer growth and metastasis

Targeted therapies such as tamoxifen, fulvestrant and anastrozole have exhibited significant clinical success since being introduced as treatments for Estrogen Receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer patients. Read more

Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process. Read more

The role of vitamin D3 in treating skin cancer and preventing drug resistance

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
During the last decade numerous studies have alluded to vitamin D. 3. playing a role in the prevention of cancer. Recent clinical trials looking at the potential role of vitamin D. Read more

Investigating how tumour associated macrophages affect cancer metastasis and response to therapies

Solid tumours are generally highly infiltrated by macrophages. Macrophages are heterogeneous and different populations with different and sometimes even opposite functions co-exist in tumours affecting cancer progression. Read more

Driving phenotypic plasticity and metastasis in small cell lung cancer

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive malignancy with poor prognosis. Underlying this aggressiveness is intra-tumoural heterogeneity driven by phenotypic plasticity wherein tumour cells transition from a neuroendocrine (NE) to a non-neuroendocrine (non-NE) phenotype. Read more

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

The role of ubiquitin-modifying enzymes in angiogenesis

The School of Molecular & Cellular Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2024/25. Read more

Investigating molecular drivers of cell invasion

The Wells laboratory focusses on exploring the molecular mechanisms that underlie cell invasion. We have interests in cancer cell invasion and hemopoietic cell invasion. Read more

Investigating the roles that G protein coupled receptors play in hypertension

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) constitute a very large family of heptahelical, integral membrane proteins that mediate a wide variety of physiological processes ranging from the transmission of light and odorant signals to the mediation of neurotransmission and hormonal actions. Read more

Defining targeting vulnerabilities in breast cancer stem cells

Applications are invited for a 4-year self-funded PhD Studentship starting all year round. Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer worldwide and remains a leading cause of death in females. Read more
