Professor Tatjana Crnogorac-Jurcevic
Professor of Molecular Pathology and Biomarkers

My research focuses on molecular pathology of pancreatic cancer, in particular its development and progression. We are using this knowledge to develop biomarkers for early, non-invasive detection of this malignancy in urine specimens.

Dr Gabriella Ficz
Senior Lecturer

My group aims to discover the epigenetic changes taking place during cancer initiation and develop potential drugs that can prevent these changes which may be abnormal but reversible, before many damaging mutations occur.

Professor Marco Gerlinger
Professor of Gastrointestinal Cancer Medicine; Consultant Medical Oncologist and Director of GI Cancer Research at St. Bartholomew's Hospital

We are investigating how drug resistance evolves in bowel and gastro-oesophageal cancers, how these tumour types can be treated more effectively through novel immunotherapies and targeted drugs, and how treatment sensitivity and resistance can be predicted.

Dr Michelle Lockley
Reader in Medical Oncology, Honorary Consultant

Our lab aims to improve treatments for women with ovarian cancer, particularly those that are resistant to chemotherapy. We are interested in developing therapies that can adapt to the evolution of chemotherapy resistance over time such as Adaptive Therapy.

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 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.

Dr Jun Wang
Senior Lecturer

I have broad research interests and experience in bioinformatics, cancer genomics and data analytics. These research areas mainly involve developing and applying bioinformatics and computational approaches to analyse large-scale cancer datasets to uncover novel diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers. I also lead the Cancer Research UK Barts Centre Bioinformatics Core Facility.

Dr Benjamin Werner
Lecturer

My group combines mathematics, computer simulations and genomic information to study evolutionary processes. We aim to understand how a tumour’s evolutionary history is reflected in its genome, how evolution can be quantified in individual tumours and how this information predicts future evolution.

Dr Hannah Armes

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

Dr Nathaniel Mon Père

I investigate mathematical properties of somatic evolution in the context of both cancerous and healthy tissue.
