Over the past decade, my laboratory, jointly headed with Professor Geoff Lindeman has made important contributions to breast cancer research, including:
- Identifying breast stem cells, which give rise to normal breast tissue.
- Defining how normal breast growth is regulated, and how errors lead to breast cancer.
- Identifying the breast cells that are predisposed to becoming cancerous in women with BRCA1 gene mutations.
- Discovering potential strategies to treat and prevent breast cancer.

Translation is an important focus of our laboratory and towards this end we have generated valuable preclinical models to study potentially novel treatments.
