Dr Stephen Robinson
Group Leader / Senior Lecturer
Historically the Robinson lab focuses on understanding the molecular basis of endothelial cell adhesion and migration in regulating angiogenesis. We have established a strong reputation for combining the use of transgenic and knockout mice with cellular and molecular biology to gain mechanistic insight into physiological and pathological (particularly in the context of solid tumours) angiogenesis. We also study how microbial communities and specific microbiota members interact with the host to regulate tumour immune surveillance during breast and pancreatic cancer, as well as during vascular development and health.
