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

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

Biological role of neuropeptides and their receptors

Cell signalling is critical to the co-ordination and functioning of all cells. Cell signalling allows cells to co-ordinate activities within the intracellular environment as well as ensuring cells know how to correctly respond to other cells and to an ever-changing extracellular environment as well. Read more

Investigating lysosomal (dys)function in ageing and neurodegeneration

Project Overview. Ageing is associated with a decline in the functions of an organism (López-Otín, C. et al. Cell, 2023) and correlates with an increased risk of developing diseases in the later life (Niccoli, T. Read more

How do hormones regulate memory?

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone are common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism is prevalent in around 8-10% of the population and is associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory. Read more

Investigating Neuropeptide Signalling From Synthesis to Survival

Project Overview. Neuropeptides, comprising of short amino acid chains, are potent bioactive molecules with extensive neuromodulatory functions and are predominantly expressed within the central nervous system. Read more

Unravelling the Intricacies of Stress Hormone Regulation

Project Overview. The proopiomelanocortin (POMC) pathway is a crucial signaling cascade involved in regulating various physiological processes, including our response to stress, metabolism, immune function, and pigmentation. Read more

Using CRISPR in iPS cells to modify platelet function

Project Overview. Platelets are the small cells in the blood whose job it is to prevent bleeding. Under normal conditions, when they encounter a damaged blood vessel they become activated and form a thrombus. Read more
