Environmental Carcinogenesis

Environmental Carcinogenesis

Led by Professor David Phillips and Dr Volker Arlt the Environmental Carcinogenesis Group studies the molecular epidemiology of cancer and monitors human exposure to environmental carcinogens by detecting and characterising DNA and protein adducts in human tissues. 

These studies provide biomarkers of exposure and clues to the aetiology of cancer. Experimental studies involve elucidating the pathways of metabolic activation of environmental carcinogens, the mutagenic consequences of DNA damage caused by carcinogens, and the effects on gene expression, cell cycle and DNA repair in human cells exposed to such agents.
