Accepting Doctoral Students

Personal profile

Research interests

Our lab at the University of Bath is interested in the role of tumour microenvironment and how it impacts tumour progression and therapy response. We aim to identify novel strategies to target the tumour and/or stroma for the prevention or suppression of (metastatic) cancer and to overcome treatment-resistant tumour progression.



Until January 2024, I was Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at the University of Bath. Since then I am a Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bath and Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Cancer Drug Discovery at Newcastle University in the Cancer Research UK Newcastle Drug Discovery Unit and Translational and Clinical Research Institute
