Researchers: Dr Rebecca Feltham (Principal investigator)

Brief description Cancer cells promote their own growth by exploiting the body’s natural defence. This natural defence is termed inflammation and cancer cells utilise inflammation to grow and metastasise. We have identified two exciting proteins that are required for cancer cells to stay alive. Under conditions that drive inflammation, if we remove these proteins cancer cells now activate their death signals and die. Our discovery provides new opportunities on fundamental ways by which cancer cells can be killed.
