Current Research projects:
Breast density research project Investigates the effects of four oestrogen mimics (BPA, *genistein, *resveratrol & **diethylstilbestrol) on breast cells (fibroblasts) obtained from breast tissue of different mammographic density (MD), to understand how these influence MD and drive breast cancer [*found in plants; **anti-miscarriage pill no longer used]
Oxysterols and their role in Triple Negative Breast Cancer This work will measure oxysterols in breast tissue and explore whether particular oxysterols accumulate in breast cancer cells, in particular triple negative breast tumours, leading to chemotherapy resistance and tumour spread. It will also investigate whether a dietary intervention can alter oxysterols produced by host cells, thereby preventing breast cancer recurrence.
