Project summary

Esther is currently working with Professor John Condeelis and Professor Jeffrey Pollard at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, where her research focuses on understanding the role of different macrophage subtypes during breast cancer metastasis. Esther will also undertake periods of research at the London Research Institute with Dr Erik Sahai, concentrating on how cancer cells and cancer-associated fibroblasts attract monocytes and stimulate them to develop into macrophages that help the tumour.
