Dr Timothy Humphrey is studying DNA modifications present in breast cancers, which could play a role in helping tumours to grow. His work could lead to new ways of treating breast cancers and ultimately save lives.
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.
