Upstream signalling in the Hippo tumour suppressor pathway

Project Description

The Hippo pathway is a group of genes that works together to control the size of different organs, and is commonly mutated in human cancers. We aim to decipher how Hippo pathway proteins relay signals from the cell surface to the nucleus to instruct cells on when to grow, divide and survive. Our studies will shed light on how tissue growth is controlled, and have the potential to inform the way that we treat human cancers and tissue growth disorders.
