Microbiota and vascular health

As part of my PhD research project I am investigating how manipulations of the gut microbiome, through anti- and probiotic supplementation, influence breast cancer metastasis. I am especially interested in how these manipulations influence the immune response to cancer in both the primary tumour and known metastatic sites and how these responses ultimately affect the spread of the disease.
