In cancer, cells divide and grow uncontrollably, forming malignant tumours and invade nearby parts of the body. Understanding the mechanisms that control cell growth is intrinsic to furthering our knowledge of how this disease progresses and how we can treat it.

We are particularly interested in using yeast as a model to study the effects of the oncogenic eEF1A2 and the mechanisms it uses to induce tumourigenesis.
