Dr Gunnel Halldén
Reader in Cancer Gene Therapy

The research in our team is focused on the development of novel treatment strategies to target prostate and pancreatic cancers using genetically modified viruses that target, replicate and kill cancer cells but leave normal cells unharmed.

Professor Yong-Jie Lu
Professor of Molecular Oncology

We aim to identify genetic alterations that influence cancer development, progression and therapeutic responses, in particular prostate cancer, and further develop them into biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and therapeutic stratification, with a current focus on circulating biomarkers.

Professor Thomas Powles
Professor of Genitourinary Oncology, Director, Barts Cancer Centre, Lead for Solid Tumour Research

My main research interests are in genital and urinary cancers, leading a spectrum of clinical studies from phase I to randomised phase III. The majority of the studies are translational phase II studies investigating novel targeted and immune therapies.

Dr Prabhakar Rajan
Clinical Senior Lecturer in Urology

My laboratory research explores alternative pre-mRNA splicing in prostate cancer (PCa) biology, and liquid biopsy-derived molecular biomarkers of treatment outcomes.

Dr Chinedu (Anthony) Anene

My current project aim is to develop novel molecular biomarkers for prostate cancer, a leading cause of male specific cancer death.

Dr John Foster

My project focuses on understanding how the proteins involved in RNA binding and alternative splicing of pre-mRNA are regulated.

Dr Lauren Maskell

My research is focused on the coating and modifying of a prostate selective oncolytic adenovirus to enable systemic delivery, eliminate metastases and induce tumour immunity.

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.
