Research description

I am based in the Biochemistry Department and work on several cancer related projects, primarily in collaboration with Jim Metcalfe, Kevin Brindle and Doug Easton. These fall into four areas (1) Development of anti-angiogenic gene therapy, (2) Studies of transforming growth factor beta (TGF?), (3) Studies on a breast cancer-associated gene, TOX3, and (4) Studies of gene expression and metabolomic profiles in response to electromagnetic fields.
