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 Paolo Gallipoli
Clinical Senior Lecturer in Haemato-Oncology

My research interests focus on mechanisms of disease initiation and maintenance and the identification and validation of novel therapeutic targets in myeloid leukaemias.

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
Clinical Professor of Haematology

Our research aims to understand the biology of leukaemia stem cells and identify tricks they use to escape treatments. My group employs multidisciplinary approaches to understand how HSCs chose to self-renew or differentiate and how these cell fate decisions are affected under pathological conditions to generate leukaemic stem cells.

Dr Faraz Mardakheh
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; Director of Graduate Studies for Research (BCI)

Our research is based on exploiting DNA repair defects in cancer for the identification of new personalised therapies. We use compound and siRNA screening to identify new therapeutics for tumours based on their specific DNA repair status.

Dr Sarah McClelland
Senior Lecturer

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 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.

Dr Hannah Armes

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

Dr Suhnrita Chaudhuri

My research is focused on combining modulation of the tumour microenvironment with chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy in order to therapeutically target pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Dr Maria Dermit

Using a multi-omics approach, my aim is to systematically reveal the relationship between RNA localisation and protein expression in mammalian cells, and assess how RNA localisation might be dysregulated in cancer cells in order to promote a more malignant phenotype.

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 Quentin Heydt

My research focuses on the fundamental aspects of leukaemia initiating cell biology in adult acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

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 Celine Philippe

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

Dr Vera Silva

I am trying to understand how new drugs in combination with carboplatin can help bypass therapy resistance in ovarian cancer.

Dr Louie van de Lagemaat

I use computational biology techniques to understand how normal RNA regulatory mechanisms used in development are hijacked in cancers.

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.
