The Cell Division and Cancer Group is interested in deciphering the mechanisms by which cell division and cell proliferation are regulated in a variety of mammalian cell types. Our scientific interests are: i) to understand the basic control mechanisms that regulate the cell division cycle; ii) to characterise the physiological and therapeutic consequences of cell cycle deregulation; iii) understanding self-renewal and pluripotency in stem cell biology and tumour development; and iv) finding and validating 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.
