Although there is a great prevalence of breast cancer as well as colorectal cancer, understanding how these cancers spread is not clear. The Immuno-Oncology group at UoS examines therapeutic modalities for cancer and autoimmune disorders with an emphasis on the role of natural killer (NK) cells in ameliorating these diseases.
Further, this group has developed a mouse model for multiple sclerosis (MS), i.e. experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). This model is used to examine the effects of various drugs, antibodies and small molecules in treating this disease, as well as investigating the role of immune cells. We combine these studies with bioinformatics and epigenetic analyses.
