Dr Nick Orr is working to understand how some genetic changes linked to an increased risk of breast cancer in men and women, may cause the disease. This could help us develop new ways to prevent and treat breast cancer.
Breast cancer can trick nearby immune system cells to help the disease to grow, spread and resist treatment. Dr Ali Roghanian aims to understand how breast cancer cells communicate with these immune cells and how we can stop this.
Dr Hamid Ali is using state of the art technology to better understand how immune system cells interact with breast cancer cells. The hope is that this will reveal who would benefit most from having immunotherapy.
