Lab focus: inflammation-associated cancers

Our laboratory studies how communication between cells influences health and disease. Cancers arise when abnormal cells grow out of otherwise normal tissue.

The resulting tumours contain many different types of cells. Some of these help the tumour to grow, and some fight the tumour.

We are interested in understanding how soluble molecules called cytokines influence the cells that promote the growth and spread of cancers of the stomach, bowel and pancreas. In particular, we are evaluating whether blocking these cytokines could be a new strategy to improve cancer treatment.
