The Kingston University Cancer Research group is a diverse group that brings together cancer researchers from across the University including workers in the faculties of Science, Engineering and Computing and Health, Social Care and Education.
Our aims are to improve our understanding of carcinogenesis, the early detection of cancer, patient treatment and quality of life through inter-disciplinary research.
Our research interests and expertise span a range of areas including cell and molecular biology of cancer, the importance of inflammation, infectious agents, nutrition and biomarkers in cancer, cancer diagnosis and imaging, anti-cancer drug design and delivery, and patient treatment and monitoring using the latest mobile health technologies.
We work with clinicians, pathologists, pharmacists, nurses, radiographers, medical physicists and engineers, and national and international collaborators from both academia and the pharmaceutical industry to investigate the mechanisms of tumour development, progression and metastasis, to develop novel treatments and diagnostic techniques and to make sure that our research will have a positive translational impact on the lives of people with cancer.
Our research is focused into three main themes:
