Associate Professor in Cancer Biology and Gene Expression, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
Victoria obtained a PhD in genetics from the University of Leicester in 2007. Following her PhD studies, she pursued postdoctoral training in the fields of molecular and cell biology. Victoria was awarded the prestigious JG Graves Research Fellowship in 2012, which she held at the University of Sheffield Cancer Research Centre until joining the University of Nottingham as a lecturer in 2014. Victoria now splits her time between research and teaching and is an active member of the University of Nottingham's Cancer Research Priority Area.

Applications for PhD positions are invited all year round from exceptional graduates to study the contribution of extra-cellular communication and non-coding RNAs to cancer progression and metastasis.
Candidates interested in joining the lab to work in this research area can contact Dr James by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Currently positions are only available to self-funded students. There are a number of international studentships available to international applicants: see http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/InternationalOffice/prospective-students/scholarships/index.aspx.
Victoria is involved in teaching on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by the University of Nottingham. Victoria's teaching philosophy centres on student interaction and engagement, implemented through the integration of technology and traditional teaching strategies.
Victoria's research is focussed on understanding the complex mechanisms that lead to cancer progression and metastasis. Her group investigates how extracellular communication, via RNA and proteins, promotes cancer progression and the adaption of the metastatic niche, with the aim of identifying novel markers to better stage and predict disease behaviour for the development of novel therapeutic strategies. Victoria has a specific interest in both primary and metastatic cancers of bone as well as cutaneous and other soft tissue tumours.
