Professor Hemant Kocher
Professor of Liver and Pancreas Surgery

My clinical research interests include tissue banking, clinical trials, innovative surgical techniques, epidemiology, meta-analysis and patient care pathways. My translational research interests include pancreatic cancer stroma and tumour-stroma cross-talk including cell signalling, adhesion, metastasis and invasion.

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.

Professor John Gribben
Professor of Medical Oncology

My group focuses on immunological approaches to the treatment of haematological cancers. My primary research interests include the immunotherapy of cancer (including stem cell transplantation), the identification of B-cell-tumour antigens; and the detection and treatment of minimal residual disease in leukaemia and lymphoma.

Dr Rifca Le Dieu
Clinical Senior Lecturer

I am the Module Lead for 3 undergraduate Biomedical Science Modules. I am also the Cancer Theme Lead for MBBS with direct responsibility for Year 2 Cancer Week. In addition, I supervise MSc project dissertations.

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.

Dr Jessica Okosun
Clinical Senior Lecturer

My research focuses on understanding the genetic and molecular mechanisms that underlie the initiation and progression of B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas in order to define clinically-relevant 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 David Propper
Senior Lecturer

My focus is detailed translational trials in pancreatic cancer. I work with scientists within the BCI in crosscutting themes targeting the tumour microenvironment, with approaches including immune therapies, stem cell, stromal and vascular targeting.

Professor Peter Schmid
Professor of Cancer Medicine

My research interests primarily focus on breast cancer, lung cancer and early drug development. I oversee clinical and translational research on immune checkpoint inhibitors and other immune strategies.

Dr Oscar Maiques

My research will focus on studying Myosin II function during melanoma progression and its cross-talk with inflammatory and immune responses.

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.

Dr Alice Shia

My main research focus is investigating the changes in circulating nucleic acids in blood samples from patients recruited in clinical trials. We are interested in how we can use non-invasive techniques to detect changes in tumour DNA and correlate that to patient outcome.

Dr Graeme Thorn

My research focuses on the bioinformatic analyses of DNA methylation of circulating tumour DNA and the use of DNA methylation as a biomarker for breast cancer prognosis.
