Oxford

The Oxford Branch studies signaling pathways that influence cancer initiation and progression, with a focus on infection, inflammation and cancer epigenetics. We aim to advance cancer prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment.

About

Ludwig Oxford approaches the problems of cancer biology from several different angles. Our research program explores cancer susceptibility, initiation, progression, metastasis and resistance to therapy, and includes technical expertise essential to the development of novel clinical and research technologies—such as computational modeling and chemical biology. Over all, our specific areas of interest include the study of tumor heterogeneity and the regulation of gene expression, reflecting our interests in genetics, epigenetics, the tumor microenvironment, cell signaling and gene expression. Our branch has recently launched a multidisciplinary research program focused on upper gastrointestinal cancers, with the aim of developing novel approaches to preventing, diagnosing and treating such malignancies. Our laboratories are housed in the Old Road Campus Research Building, and we are affiliated with the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford.
