Research Statement

The Stratified Medicine Group focuses on the following areas:

1) Characterisation of a molecular group in solid cancers that represents an innate immune response to DNA damage through the STING pathway.

2) Development of a biomarker for anti-angiogenic agents

3) Development of a biomarker for MEKK pathway activation

4) Identification of a prognostic biomarker for early prostate cancer

5) Development of new cell lines for pre-clinical modelling of ovarian and prostate cancer.
