We are investigating how tumours survive in conditions which include low oxygen (hypoxia). Our goal is to target the hypoxic parts of tumours to improve cancer therapy.

Our major interests are in the fundamental genetics and biology of colorectal cancer and their potential applications; and the characterisation and population distribution of genetic diversity in human populations, especially of the British Isles.
