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.

Dr Andrejs Braun
Senior Lecturer

I am interested in the mechanisms of tumour clearance in response to targeted therapy with monoclonal antibodies. I work on antibody therapies for lymphoma and the epigenetics of somatic hypermutation in normal and malignant B cells.

Dr Gabriella Ficz
Senior Lecturer

My group aims to discover the epigenetic changes taking place during cancer initiation and develop potential drugs that can prevent these changes which may be abnormal but reversible, before many damaging mutations occur.

Dr Rifca Le Dieu
Clinical Senior Lecturer

I am the Module Lead for 3 undergraduate Biomedical Science Modules. I am also the Cancer Theme Lead for MBBS with direct responsibility for Year 2 Cancer Week. In addition, I supervise MSc project dissertations.

Dr Jessica Okosun
Clinical Senior Lecturer

My research focuses on understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms that underlie the initiation and progression of B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in order to define clinically-relevant biomarkers.

Dr Kevin Rouault-Pierre
Lecturer

My main research interests are in haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and leukemic initiating cells. I seek to understand how intrinsic and extrinsic signals are integrated by normal and malignant stem cells.

Dr Findlay Redvers Bewicke-Copley

My work is currently focused on lymphoma, working on variant calling and gene expression analysis of NGS data.

Dr David Britton

My project is focused on determining how certain proteins enable acute myeloid leukaemia blasts to acquire or have intrinsic resistance to chemotherapy, with the aim to identify suitable pharmaceutical alternatives to combat resistance.

Dr Marta Crespi-Sallan

My research is focused on describing the mechanisms underlying Lamin B1 nuclear disassembly in B-cell normal development and how a dis-regulated Lamin B1 removal pathway could lead to several haematological malignancies within the germinal centre in secondary lymph organs.

Dr James Heward

My research focuses on characterising epigenetic therapies for the “epigenetically addicted” germinal centre lymphomas.

Dr Giuseppe Palladino

The goal of my research is to understand the mechanisms that determine the course of cancer evolution. My current focus is the investigation of the transcriptional and the epigenetic regulation arising during the evolution and progression of follicular lymphoma.

Dr Ana Rio-Machin

My research project aims to identify germline mutations in families with leukaemia of unknown aetiology and study the intra and inter leukaemia heterogeneity observed in these families, through examination of clonal evolution and secondary genetic events.

Dr Filomena Spada

My research involves using mass cytometry based analysis to characterise the interaction, activation, and signalling capacity of B and T-cells in CLL and other B-cell malignancies.

Dr Chrysi Xintaropoulou

The aim of my research is to elucidate the biology of leukaemia initiating cells, responsible for disease recurrence, in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
