My laboratory at The University of Sheffield, UK, is interested in how the cells and other factors surrounding a tumour (the ‘tumour microenvironment’) affect cancer development and spread. In particular we examine how molecules termed non-coding RNA influence this communication, and what roles extracellular vesicles may play in this. We are using this information to find new drug targets and to identify novel biomarkers to aid treatment and prognostication of head and neck and other cancers.
