Focal Adhesion Biology

The focal adhesion biology team (FAB) aims to understand how cancer cell interaction with the surrounding tissue impacts cancer development, progression and response to therapy. The tissue microenvironment (TME) is a critical regulator of cancer behaviour, yet few current laboratory methods take this into account. Our team works to develop better laboratory-based methods that mimic the TME and therefore allow us to identify new treatments that have a better chance of success.
