Our research focuses on molecules, called chemokines, which regulate the movement of cells within the body. These molecules are very important in cancer as they are responsible for the accumulation of white blood cells at cancer sites. These white blood cells are important for fighting disease and preventing cancer development. Chemokines are also important in controlling the process called metastasis in which cancer cells move to form secondary cancers.  By understanding how chemokines regulate white blood cell movement in metastasis we hope to be able to identify novel ways of treating cancer and metastasis.
