Breast cancer enzyme investigation

Breast cancer enzyme investigation

Spring 2011

£78,452 for a three year PhD project into the causes of sporadic (non-genetically inherited) breast cancer.

Research will delve into an enzyme called PLK, known to be overproduced in a large proportion of breast cancers.

Knowing exactly how PLK works is key in the understanding and development of new therapies that might target the early stages of breast cancer.
