Cancer Mechanisms and Models
This research area involves the investigation of the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of cancer. MBP researchers use state-of-the-art model systems such as primary cell culture, organoids, patient-derived xenografts and genetically-engineered mouse models (GEMMs) to gain novel molecular insights into how cancer develops, progresses and spreads.
Examples of specific research topics include:
- Animal Models
- Patient-Derived Cancer Models
- Signalling Pathways
- Obesity and Cancer
- Tumor Microenvironment
