Background

Introduction

The tumour microenvironment plays a fundamental role in the progression of cancer . My research interests involve investigating the intricate relationship between the malignant cells and their surroundings, with particular emphasis on the tumour extracellular matrix (ECM) . Particular areas of interest include:

  • Targeting the ECM to treat cancer
  • Elucidating the role of the ECM in cancer cell invasion and metastasis
  • Understanding the role of matrix components in chemotherapy resistance
  • The role of hyaluronan in cancer biology
  • Cancer resistance of the Naked Mole Rat
