Our research focuses on certain aspects of cancer progression and the biology of the human placenta. Specifically, our cancer studies have led us to investigate mechanisms by which the local tumour microenvironment contributes to the acquisition of metastatic behaviour and resistance to therapy in malignant cells. Our research on pregnancy aims for a better understanding of the relationships between fetally-derived placental trophoblast cells and maternal tissues and how disruption of such relationships can lead to complications.
