Research Overview

Cancer is a disease characterised by errors in cell cycle regulation, leading to uncontrolled cell proliferation. However, these errors also lead to cancer cells possessing unique phenotypes, such as centrosome amplification, which could potentially decrease their survival. In my laboratory we aim to understand these phenotypes and in turn target these to provide cancer-specific methods for inhibiting cell proliferation.
