People: International exchange

Thomas R. Cox, Feb 2018

Our team will shortly be welcoming Sumeyra (Elvan) Kaya from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.

Elvan KayaElvan is joining us on exchange as part of her Masters Degree program at the University of Groningen. Elvan is interested in studying more about cancer metastasis and the role that the extracellular matrix plays in this.

Her project will look into novel ways to target the lysyl oxidases. This family of enzymes is critical to cross-linking the extracellular matrix and are highly dysregulated in cancer leading to tumour progression and spread.
