Centre for Cancer Sciences

Cancer research

The Centre for Cancer Sciences, which is part of the School of Medicine in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, hosts laboratory research groups that focus on the cancer microenvironment. In particular:

  • the interface between tumour cells and their environment
  • cancer immunology
  • the way cancer spreads
  • how tumours overcome damage by anti-cancer treatments

We investigate disease using primary cells, complex 3D and in vivo models, and other cancer related cells such as immune, vascular and stromal cells.
