Dr Lisa Pang

Research Fellow


I completed my PhD in cancer cell signalling at the CRUK Cancer Research Centre in 2008. During my PhD, I identified a novel p21 feedback loop in the regulation of p53, and did an industrial placement developing novel small molecule inhibitors against members of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase related kinase family, with the aim of sensitising cancer cells to DNA damage. I am currently a research fellow at The Roslin Institute and a member of The Comparative Oncology and Stem Cell Research Group. My research is focused on unravelling the biology of cancer stem cells and further understanding the molecular mechanisms driving tumour repopulation after therapy. I am responsible for teaching cell biology to graduate entry veterinary students and I am the course organiser of the foundations module of the MSc Animal Biosciences.
