Our aim here is simple - to improve our understanding of the role of cancer stem cells in a range of cancers, through world-leading research.
Our research focuses on cancer stem cells, which we believe offer the possibility of transforming cancer treatments.
Here, our research team leaders offer their perspectives on targeting cancer stem cells and how their research impacts on cancer therapy.
