'Working towards tailored therapies for inherited diseases and cancer'

My research centres on the inherited conditions, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and Birt-Hogg-Dubé (BHD) syndrome where patients are predisposed to develop cysts and tumours. I aim to understand what is malfunctioning in these cells at a molecular level, with the goal of identifying weaknesses which could be specifically targeted by therapies. As there is crossover between the altered growth pathways observed in these genetic diseases and the pathways which are at fault in sporadic cancer, these future treatments could also be effective for the wider cancer community. Therefore, through a better understanding of disease processes we can work towards stratifying patients based on the genetics of their disease and treating them with appropriately tailored therapies.
