The Cell Division and Cancer Group is interested in deciphering the mechanisms by which cell division and cell proliferation are regulated in mammalian cells. Our scientific interests are:
- To understand the basic control mechanisms that regulate the cell division cycle.
- To characterise the physiological and therapeutic consequences of cell cycle deregulation.
- Understanding self-renewal and pluripotency in stem cell biology and tumour development.
- Improving the use of old and new targets for cancer therapy.
As a final goal, we aim to generate information that will be useful for understanding basic mechanisms of cell function and to improve therapeutic strategies against cancer cell proliferation.
