Project description

Although an association between tissue damage, chronic inflammation and cancer is well established, little is known about the underlying molecular mechanisms. Here, I aim to investigate the role of candidate molecules in mediating signalling events between keratinocytes and immune cells in the wound and tumour skin microenvironment.
