Course content

The Pathology Research Group is a joint University and NHS venture with bases at both Queen’s Medical Centre and the City Hospital, Nottingham. The group has research interests in the pathology of neurodegenerative diseases and the pathology and clinical management of patients with breast and colorectal cancer.

The Breast Cancer Pathology Research Group has an international track record in the classification of breast cancer, diagnosis of breast disease, evaluation of prognostic factors in breast cancer and understanding of the mechanisms governing hormone response in breast cancer.

The group also has expertise in studying the genetics of colorectal cancer and, in particular, the role of Wnt signalling. This signalling pathway is disrupted in a variety of different tumour types and is important for the maintenance of stem cells in normal tissues.
