Cancer and Haematology

CSF stem cell colony
The Cancer and Haematology division is working to understand the production and function of the billions of blood cells used each day to fight infections and repair tissues, and how they are regulated at the molecular level.
Our aim is to understand how this process is disrupted in disease, to aid in developing new therapies for immune and inflammatory diseases, blood clotting disorders and cancers.
