Current Research Interests and Expertise

  • Breast cancer biology
  • Cell Signalling
  • Mechanisms of therapeutic resistance
  • Assessment of alternative therapies

Resistance to anti-cancer treatment is a major issue for cancer patients. Our work focuses on (i) understanding the contribution that cell signalling plays to the development of therapeutic resistance in breast cancer, (ii) identifying new therapeutic targets and (iii) discovering potential new treatments.
