Professor John F. Marshall
Professor of Tumour Biology

I study the biology of tumour invasion with a particular focus on 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 the interaction between cells and the extracellular matrix.

Dr Angus James Cameron
Reader in Cell Signalling and Tumour Biology; Director of Graduate Studies (BCI)

My research focuses on kinases regulating cancer cell growth and motility to understand how and when to target them with drugs. My group is currently examining the role of the PKN kinases in malignant progression.

Dr Mirjana Efremova
Lecturer

We are interested in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that promote cancer cell plasticity and adaptation of tumour cells in metastatic niches and under therapeutic pressure.

Professor Susana Godinho
Professor in Cancer Cell Biology

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.

Professor Louise Jones
Professor of Breast Pathology

My research in breast cancer focuses on the progression of in-situ to invasive disease with the aims of identifying 1) markers which can predict behaviour and 2) novel therapeutic targets.

Professor Stéphanie Kermorgant
Professor of Cellular Oncology

We study the role of growth factor receptor signalling and intracellular trafficking (movement inside cells) in tumour growth and metastasis in the view of improving cancer therapy.

Dr Luigi Ombrato
Lecturer

My group studies how different populations of immune cells in the tumour microenvironment cross-talk in order to establish a tumour-supportive niche in metastasis. This research aims to identify more effective therapeutic targets in metastatic cancers.

Dr Oliver M. Pearce
Senior Lecturer

The focus of our research is the tumour microenvironment and we are particularly interested in understanding the composition and function of the tumour extracellular matrix in immunosuppression. Cancer types we focus on include ovarian and breast cancers.

Professor Thomas Powles
Professor of Genitourinary Oncology; Director, Barts Cancer Centre at St. Bartholomew's Hospital; 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 Paulo Ribeiro
Reader in Cell and Developmental Biology

Our research group is interested in uncovering the molecular mechanisms regulating tissue growth, invasion and metastasis using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a genetically tractable model organism.

Professor Victoria Sanz-Moreno
Honorary 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 Louisa Chard

Our research focuses on the use of modified, replicating oncolytic Vaccinia viruses and adenoviruses armed with immune-modulatory genes such as cytokines to create a self-propagating treatment for tumours that results in long-term immunological memory to the tumour cells.

Dr Lourdes Chulia-Peris

My research focuses on studying the bidirectional crosstalk between normal fibroblast (NF), CAFs, matrix organisation and the acquisition of tumour amoeboid cell state in co-culture systems.

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 Vittoria Graziani

My research looks at if/how invasive traits and metabolism of amoeboid versus mesenchymal cancer cells are altered in response to tissue mechanics, with the aim of developing anti-metastasis treatment(s).

Dr Panoraia Kotantaki

My research is focused on the tumour microenvironment of ovarian cancer with a particular focus on the extracellular matrix and how current and novel treatments influence this microenvironment.

Dr Rachel Lawrence

My research focuses on measuring circulating tumour cells as a blood-based biomarker for aggressive prostate cancer.

Dr Juan Manuel Marti

My current project dissects the role that the protein FAK plays on the induction of senescence observed in endothelial cells (ECs) after DNA damage therapy, and its role in lung cancer metastasis.

Dr Shinelle G. Menezes

My work focuses on the influence of PKN2 on the immune-microenvironment, and the invasion and metastasis of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma in vivo, using murine models.

Dr Sam Ogden

We are using single cell multi-omic approaches to study how cancer cell plasticity and the tumour microenvironment contribute to metastasis in colorectal cancer.
