MD, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow I joined the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Leicester as a Lecturer in 2013. I have passion for a variety of key areas and specialise in Transcriptional, epigenetic and cell cycle regulation in B-lymphoid cancer.
Transcriptional, epigenetic and cell cycle regulation in B-lymphoid cancer. Carcinogenesis is caused by mutations in the genetic material of normal cells Cancerous cells may: -Acquire self-sufficiency in growth, leading to independence of external growth signals Lose sensitivity to anti-growth signals that leads to unchecked growth -Lose their capacity for programmed cell death in response to genetic errors -Lose their capacity to repair genetic errors, leading to an increased mutation rate (genomic instability)
