Urological Cancer Biology Group

Group Leader: Dr Mark Linch 

The work of the Urological Cancer Biology Group (UCBG) is aimed at translating high quality basic science into clinical care for patients with Prostate or Bladder Cancer. There are 3 main overlapping themes – to understand the genomic and inflammatory heterogeneity of urological cancer (Figure. 1), to define the signalling heterogeneity of urological cancers and to develop early phase, molecularly targeted translational clinical trials in urological malignancies.
