Regulating EGFR in breast cancer
Metastasis, spread of cancer to other parts of the body, is the main cause of death in breast cancer patients. We are exploring how cancer cells can regulate the production of factors that allow them to metastasise or disperse to distant organs.
What we aim to achieve
We aim to achieve some breakthrough discoveries that will deliver new ways to diagnose and treat breast cancers that elude current therapies.
What are the next steps and milestones for your research?
To continue mapping the process of how cancer spreads from the cell to other parts of the body and to explore ways we can control this process by targeting specific proteins to limit metastasis or colonisation of secondary organs.
What motivates you to pursue cancer research?
To bring new hope to cancer sufferers and make a difference to the lives of cancer patients and their families.
My message to supporters:
I am very thankful for the support we receive through our Beat Cancer Project Grant as it enables us to pursue new ideas that are necessary if we are to find new cures.
