Research interests

The TMG study the blood vessels that supply tumours with oxygen and nutrients and their role in cancer therapy. Tumours require a blood supply to grow and the blood vessels provide a route for the spread of tumour cells to other sites in the body. Therefore, targeting treatment to the blood vessels rather than the tumour cells is a potential means of killing tumours. Much of the research involves using vascular disrupting agents (VDAs) e.g. CA4P, and the susceptibility of tumour vessels to vascular shutdown.
