Features: 

The body contains many different types of blood vessels. Sarah De Val’s lab at Ludwig Oxford is trying to understand the processes that control the growth of each type of blood vessel in order to develop better ways to manipulate them.

John Christianson describes the relevance of his studies on how cells recognize and clean up misfolded proteins, and how those processes might be targeted by therapies for cancer and other diseases.

Our researchers are investigating the processes within cells that influence the formation and growth of cancers. We're trying to identify what goes wrong at the very early stages of a cell’s path to becoming a cancer, and what distinguishes different types of cancer from each other. This will help in the future diagnosis of cancer and in the design of more effective, individualized treatments.
