Chris McCabe works on mechanisms of endocrine cancers, including thyroid and breast tumour models. The McCabe group currently holds funding from the Wellcome Trust, the Medical Research Council and Cancer Research UK. Its current research focuses on: Assessment of the role of the proto-oncogenes PTTG and PBF in thyroid, breast and colon tumours In vitro and in vivo models exploring gene function Gene expression in multiple tumour models Mechanisms of aneuploidy and genetic instability in thyroid and colon cancer The action of the sodium iodide symporter NIS in radioiodine treatment of thyroid and other tumours Diverse mechanisms of endocrine cancer Murine models of tumourigenesis Professor McCabe currently supervises six doctoral researchers and is interested in supervising future projects in the areas of breast cancer invasion and thyroid cancer therapy.
