Biography

Provide a brief statement as to the impact on the discipline of the research carried out by you and its context.

Our laboratory focuses on the study of different families of serine/threonine kinases that play key roles in signalling mechanisms following activation of seven-transmembrane and tyrosine-kinase receptors. In particular our area of research focuses on the role of Paks, p38 MAPKs, and PKCs which exert a variety of cellular effects including changes in proliferation, malignant transformation, cell death and differentiation. Briefly, we have exploited the activation of PKC as a pro-apoptotic and anti-proliferative agent in oesophageal cancer. In addition we have re-introduced p38 delta MAPK into different cancers which lack this isoform including oesophageal, renal, prostate, lung and liver which has profound effects on cell proliferation and apoptosis. Finally, we have identified different Pak isoforms which are pro-apoptotic in oesophageal and renal cancer. An important aspect of our research is to elucidate the signalling pathways underlying the apoptotic effect of these kinases using both pharmacological and molecular strategies. In addition the use of athymic nude mice to study their effects is necessary to translate in vitro results to in vivo models of tumourigenesis in order to validate our experimental hypothesis in a physiological setting. In fact we have recently reported that inhibition of Pak1 can totally abrogate the growth of renal tumours in mice. The identification of different kinase isoforms involved in cell proliferation and cell death in different types of cancer may have important therapeutic implications for the treatment of the disease.
The aim within my laboratory is to train future investigators in an intellectually exciting and supportive work environment to carry out independent, high quality research. Our goal is to educate undergraduate, PhDs and post-doctoral fellows to a level where they have the research knowledge, understanding, critical analytical skills, and the know how to apply appropriate experimental design and state-of-the-art techniques to whatever emerging questions they are attempting to address. In summary, we concentrate on developing analytical, technical and interpersonal skills.
Our laboratory strives to train research scientists in cancer cell and molecular biology focusing on the pharmacological principles of how drugs work and why some are toxic. Our research is conducted at the molecular, cellular, organ, whole organism, and clinical levels. Thus, through individual research driven projects within the department in conjunction with national and international collaborative groups we provide abundant educational opportunities in the broader area of Pharmacology for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
