Our lab focusses on the interaction between different cells in the tumour environment and the tumour cells in hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatocellular carcinoma is a primary liver cancer that develops in a background of liver diseases, meaning that it usually develops in a sick, fibrotic liver. This creates an environment that is favourable for tumour growth. In our lab, we try to identify the mechanisms that are responsible for creating a favourable tumour environment. And we will try to prevent or slow down the development of liver cancer, specifically by focusing on the tumour environment.
