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.

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).

Dr Susana Godinho
Senior Lecturer

Our research group focuses on understanding how centrosome amplification impacts tumour progression and how we can target cells with amplified centrosomes to develop new cancer therapies.

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 Eva Crosas-Molist

In 2015 I was awarded a research associate position funded by Cancer Research UK to join Dr Sanz-Moreno for my postdoc, where I develop my research studying the crosstalk between the cytoskeleton and mitochondria during tumour progression and invasion.

Dr Jesus Gomez Escudero

I am involved in some projects that are focused in the stroma components of a tumour, particularly the endothelial vessels, and its potential role in some key processes including chemotherapy or metastasis.

Dr Kate Moore

My research is focused on understanding how integrins help cancer cells invade and metastasise, as well as how we can use integrins as biomarkers of disease and therapeutic targets.
