My research interest in general is cell signalling and more particularly how cell surface receptors can contribute to tumorigenesis. My PhD project focuses on the p75 neurotrophin receptor, whose signalling and intra-membrane proteolysis have been found to be crucial for glioblastoma cell motility and invasiveness.
