The Mechanisms of Cancer and Ageing Laboratory was established in 2008. Our goal is to investigate the molecular processes that define cancer and ageing in order to propose novel therapies that could be used clinically in the near future. You can find us at the University of Leicester (UK) and the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (Spain).

We use a combination of models to define a translational approach to the study of cancer and ageing. Our projects are the result of a collaboration between a multidisciplinary team of scientists that include medics, biologists, biochemists, clinicians, bioinformaticians and chemists. Check our most recent papers here.

Also check Salvador Macip's page at the University of Leicester an the page at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute.

If you are interested in joining the lab at any of the two locations, as a PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher, please contact us to discuss avialable options.
