Research Interests

My research is focused on the links between cancer and inflammation, being especially interested in translating knowledge of cancer biology into new biological treatments for cancer and in the role that inflammatory cytokines play in cancer promotion.

My key areas of interest are:

  • The Tumour Microenvironment
  • Inflammatory cytokines and chemokines in the tumour microenvironment
  • 'Ovarian' cancer with a focus on high grade serous and clear cell subtypes
  • Public engagement with biomedical science and science policy
