Professor Jack Cuzick
John Snow Professor of Epidemiology

I am John Snow Professor of Epidemiology at Queen Mary University of London. 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 John F. Marshall
Professor of Tumour Biology

I study the biology of tumour invasion with a particular focus on 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 the interaction between cells and the extracellular matrix.

Dr Andy Finch
Senior Lecturer

Our group studies changes in metabolism and metabolic stresses that are caused by oncogene activation and how these stresses lead to tumour suppressive responses.

Professor Louise Jones
Professor of Breast Pathology

My research in breast cancer focuses on the progression of in-situ to invasive disease with the aims of identifying 1) markers which can predict behaviour and 2) novel therapeutic targets.

Dr Ioanna Keklikoglou
Lecturer

Our group focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that mediate resistance to anti-cancer therapies in breast cancer. We are interested in dissecting the microenvironmental cues that orchestrate specific tumour responses and metastasis formation.

Dr Stéphanie Kermorgant
Reader in Cellular Oncology

We study the role of growth factor receptor signalling and intracellular trafficking (movement inside cells) in tumour growth and metastasis in the view of improving cancer therapy.

Dr Oliver M. Pearce
Lecturer

The focus of our research is the tumour microenvironment and we are particularly interested in understanding the composition and function of the tumour extracellular matrix in immunosuppression. Cancer types we focus on include ovarian and breast cancers.

Dr Barrie Peck
Lecturer

My lab aims to understand the alterations in metabolism that take place in cancer and investigate whether extrinsic factors, such as diet, influence cancer metabolism and disease trajectory. We then want to uncover whether these dependencies can be exploited therapeutically.

Professor Peter Schmid
Professor of Cancer Medicine; Centre Lead, Centre of Experimental Cancer Medicine; Director, Barts Breast Cancer Centre

My research interests focus on improving the care of women with breast cancer through clinical trials. I am investigating a variety of novel agents that target specific pathways within cancer cells and the surrounding tissue.

Dr Maryam Abdollahyan

My research is focused on Machine Learning with applications in Bioinformatics and Health Informatics, and Data Management of the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank (BCNTB).

Dr Emily Abraham

My research is focused on studying changes in metabolism and metabolic stresses that are caused by oncogene activation and how these stresses lead to tumour suppressive responses.

Dr Michael Allen

My research focuses on understanding the progression of early breast cancer (ductal carcinoma in situ – DCIS) to invasive disease and the role of the microenvironment in this process.

Dr Renato Brito Baleeiro

The primary focus of my research is to establish a platform for a neo-antigens-based vaccine for triple-negative breast cancer and pancreatic cancer.

Dr Edward Carter

My research is focused on understanding the early stages of breast cancer by using normal human breast cells obtained through the Breast Cancer Now tissue bank as building blocks to recreate a human breast duct in the laboratory environment.

Dr Emanuela Gadaleta

We are updating the bioinformatics data management system, expanding the analytical modules and functionalities, developing purpose-built graphical pug-ins and designing the bioinformatics infrastructure to allow the querying and analysis of data returned from projects using BCNTB tissues.

Dr Paul Grevitt

My research projects involve identifying tumour suppressors involved in regulating the hypoxic response and metabolic stress, with the aim to identify novel targeted therapies against these.

Dr Peng Liu

I am interested in cancer prevention and immunotherapy using tumour-targeted replicating oncolytic viruses.

Dr Audrey Lumeau

My research focuses on understanding the relationship between chromosome instability mechanisms and tumour cells’ resistance to therapies.

Dr Helen Ross-Adams

The aim of my work is to develop clinically-relevant biomarkers that could aid in earlier disease detection, predict treatment response, and inform clinical management of patients.

Dr Emily Saunderson

I am interested in understanding whether epigenetics can play a driving role in the transition from normal to transformed cells in the breast.

Dr Elly Tyler

My research investigates a specific composition of extracellular matrix molecules which may explain the difference between responders and non-responders to immunotherapy.
