The aim of the Breast Cancer Group is to identify novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets in breast cancer patients. The current major projects within the group involves studying and identifying treatment targets against the supporting cells of the breast cancer, known as cancer-associated fibroblasts, as these cells are known to increase the aggressiveness of the cancer cells. Circulating tumour cells, which are cancer cells within the blood of breast cancer patients, are also being studied as a non-invasive indicator of the amount of cancer within the patient.
