Dr Roberto Bellelli
Lecturer

My lab aims to understand the basic mechanisms controlling DNA replication in mammalian cells and how disruption of this process leads to genomic instability and cancer.

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.

Dr Miguel Ganuza
Lecturer

Our goal is to identify mechanisms that support haematopoietic stem cell function and understand how the leukaemic stem cells “play” with these mechanisms to thrive.

Professor Kamil R. Kranc
Chair of Haematology

The central aim of our laboratory is to understand the biology of leukaemic stem cells and identify therapeutic targets to specifically eradicate them, thus discovering novel and efficient leukaemia therapies. We also focus on understanding haematopoietic stem cell biology with the hope to harness this knowledge for expanding them for therapeutic purposes.

Dr Faraz Mardakheh
Senior Lecturer

My lab utilises state-of-art multi-omics methodologies to study how protein synthesis is dysregulated in cancer cells, and how this dysregulation contributes to various stages of cancer progression.

Dr Sarah Martin
Reader in Cancer Cell Biology; Director of Graduate Studies for Research (BCI)

Our research group is involved in investigating nuclear and mitochondrial DNA repair as a therapeutic target in cancer. In particular, we have focused on the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) pathway, the system for recognising and repairing mistakes in DNA replication and so preventing genetic mutations.

Dr Sarah McClelland
Reader in Cancer Cell Biology

My lab aims to understand the mechanisms that underlie numerical and structural chromosome aberrations in cancer at a molecular level, which also involves understanding how normal cells replicate and segregate their genomes.

Dr Diu Nguyen
Lecturer

The overarching goal of our laboratory is to understand the biology of normal haematopoietic and leukaemic stem cells in order to selectively kill cancer stem cells for better leukaemia treatment.

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.

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.

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 Tanya Soliman
Lecturer

My research focuses on kinase biology and how kinase signalling pathways are hijacked in cancer. We combine computational biology with proteomics and cell biology to uncover novel ways to target these dysregulated networks.

Dr Lovorka Stojic
Lecturer

My group studies how RNA-mediated mechanisms, in particular long noncoding RNAs, regulate cell division and how dysregulation of these processes leads to genome instability and cancer.

Professor Yaohe Wang
Professor of Cancer Cell and Gene Therapy

We work on cancer prevention and immunotherapy using tumour-targeted replicating oncolytic viruses, in particular focusing on replicating adenovirus and vaccinia virus.

Mr Satyajit Bhattacharya
Honorary Reader

I am a clinical collaborator in numerous laboratory-based studies particularly the localisation of Lipiodol in Hepatocellular carcinomas, inflammatory and immune responses to surgery, and tumour-stroma interactions in pancreatic carcinoma. Clinical areas of interest have been video consultations in tertiary care, surgery for pancreatic tumours (especially NETs) and liver tumours, and tissue banking.

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 Hannah Armes

The aim of my research project is to identify and functionally characterise candidate disease genes in familial leukaemia.

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 Giulia Guiducci

My research activity aims to characterise lncRNAs involved in the maintenance of genomic stability and to understand how their dysregulation can lead to cancer development.

Dr Kubra Karaosmanoglu Yoneten

Our research is focused on metabolic stresses accompanying activation of oncogenes. We are investigating cell responses to metabolic stresses in order to deeply understand these mechanisms and propose metabolic targets for cancer therapies.

Dr Christopher Mapperley

My research is focused on investigating how the epitranscriptome regulates normal and malignant haematopoiesis.

Dr Tizong Miao

My project aims to identify strategies to boost host anti-cancer immune response through enhanced oncolytic efficiency of oncolytic viruses by small molecules.

Dr Iuliia Pavlyk

My research focuses on exploring why ASS1 is differently expressed in human cancers and how this information may be transferred for anticancer therapy.

Dr Celine Philippe

My project focuses on the translation reprogramming in acute myeloid leukaemia upon stresses such as chemotherapy.

Dr Charlott Repschläger

My research focuses on the perturbation of EMT-like pathways in follicular lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and how this promotes cancer propagation, transformation into a more aggressive form of disease and resistance to therapy.

Dr Aashika Sekar

Using the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, I aim to dissect the role played by protein phosphatases in regulating the tissue growth controlling Hippo signalling pathway, which has commonly been implicated in cancer development, progression and metastasis.

Dr Laura Wisniewski

My project looks at the modelling of cancer for improved therapy development. I am carrying out in vivo cancer experiments, with and without modifications of the tumour microenvironment, to examine effects of such treatments on anti-cancer therapy efficacy.

Dr Keith Woodley

My project looks at the metabolic mechanisms of drug resistance in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). We look to understand what makes certain cells more vulnerable to AML treatment and how we can use this to improve overall treatment strategies.
