University of Nottingham
Research in the Division is translational and involves strong collaborations with clinicians and industry. Current research areas include: use of reporter constructs for the imaging of key biological parameters within tumours, such as growth, apoptosis, angiogenesis and metastatic pathways and stem cell evolution; modelling the tumour microenvironment including the process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition; analysis of paracrine interactions in tumour progression including HGF/c-met, hedgehog, and fibroblast growth factors; delivery of siRNAs using non-viral and viral delivery systems for target validation; pre-clinical validation/target identification of traditional Chinese medicines; contribution of ß-catenin controlled intestinal stem-cell associated homeodomain transcription factors to carcinogenesis and the involvement of the tumour suppressor gene, FBW7 a ubiquitin ligase, in intestinal malignant progression.
