Cancer and cell biology division

The cancer and cell biology division is co-led by Professor Ruth Ganss and Associate Professor Andrew Redfern. 

Perkins researchers have made major discoveries in the field of cancer including uncovering the SLIRP gene which controls hormone production in breast and prostate cancers, the tumour suppressor gene HLS5 and a process for normalising blood vessels in tumours to allow more effective absorption of cancer-combating drugs.
