Research interests

A key objective of research in our group is to provide a better diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer. We are interested, particularly, in the Wnt signalling network, a critical pathway during development and in disease. The focus of our research is the role Wnt signalling plays in prostate stem cells and prostate cancer. We employ a wide range of molecular biological, biochemical, histochemical, live cell imaging and high throughput (genomic, proteomic, electrophysiological and tissue imaging) techniques to address fundamental questions regarding Wnt signalling and how this knowledge could be translated into better therapies and quantitative biomarkers of cancer. The research is funded by the PCRC charity (registered charity number 1156027).
