Professor Fran Balkwill
Professor of Cancer Biology

My key area of interest is in cancer and the tumour microenvironment, especially in ovarian cancer. I study the links between cancer and inflammation and research ways of translating this to clinical trials.

Professor Jack Cuzick
Director, Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine

I am the Director of Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine and also Head of Centre for Cancer Prevention. My current interests are in cancer epidemiology and clinical trials, with special interest in prevention and screening.

Professor Stephen Duffy
Professor of Cancer Screening

My research activities are concentrated on cancer screening and early diagnosis. There is potential for considerable saving of lives from cancer if it were diagnosed at an earlier stage.

Professor Jude Fitzgibbon
Professor of Personalised Cancer Medicine

My research group works on molecular pathology, genetics and progression of leukaemia and lymphomas, aiming to improve on current diagnostic, prognostic and treatment strategies.

Professor Trevor Graham
Professor of Cancer Evolution

My lab measures the patterns of clonal evolution that define carcinogenesis and develops novel mathematical tools for analysis and prediction. By characterising tumour evolution, we aim to find better ways to determine prognosis and more effective ways to treat cancers.

Professor Kairbaan Hodivala-Dilke
Deputy Institute Director, Professor of Angiogenesis

Cancers are composed of both tumour and stromal compartments. We are interested in understanding the molecular basis of how the tumour stroma contributes to tumour growth, therapy resistance and spread, in various solid tumours including lung cancers, pancreatic cancer and melanoma.

Professor Hemant Kocher
Professor of Liver and Pancreas Surgery

My clinical research interests include tissue banking, clinical trials, innovative surgical techniques, epidemiology, meta-analysis and patient care pathways. My translational research interests include pancreatic cancer stroma and tumour-stroma cross-talk including cell signalling, adhesion, metastasis and invasion.

Dr Ranjit Manchanda
Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist, Clinical Senior Lecturer

My main research focus is based on the development of population based approaches to genetic testing for risk stratification, cancer prevention and using targeted surgical approaches for cancer prevention in gynaecological cancers.

Professor John F. Marshall
Professor of Tumour Biology

For over 25 years I have studied the biology of tumour invasion with a particular interest in the roles of the adhesion molecules expressed on the cell surface that mediate this process. Our group concentrates on the study of integrins that are the principal family of adhesion molecules that mediate interaction between cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM).

Professor Tyson V. Sharp
Professor of Cellular and Molecular Biology

My group’s work focuses on the role of the tumour suppressor protein LIMD1 and its family members Ajuba and WTIP and how their deregulation in normal tissue contributes to the development of lung, renal and breast cancer.
