Professor Kairbaan Hodivala-Dilke
Deputy Institute Director, Professor of the Tumour Microenvironment

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.

Dr Mirjana Efremova
Lecturer

We are interested in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that promote cancer cell plasticity and adaptation of tumour cells in metastatic niches and under therapeutic pressure.

Professor Victoria Sanz-Moreno
Professor of Cancer Cell Biology

Our research focuses on how the cytoskeleton of cancer cells regulates transcriptional rewiring during tumour growth and dissemination. We aim to understand how such rewiring affects the tumour microenvironment.

Dr Vittoria Graziani

My research looks at if/how invasive traits and metabolism of amoeboid versus mesenchymal cancer cells are altered in response to tissue mechanics, with the aim of developing anti-metastasis treatment(s).

Emma Newport

I am working to produce a bank of pancreatic cancer organoids from KPC mice. We hope to use these to model PDAC in vivo and in vitro.
