Heather is our most beautiful front line researcher on the battle against cancer! Christofk studies how the way in which cancer cells genes and genetic proteins can influence their ability to utilise sugars to live and grow. This is actually different to how normal cells do – they use much more sugar than regular cells, they do this by modifying the way they use energy sources found in their immediate environment. This can help us design drugs can that target the cancer’s sugar growth pathways. The current plan is to cut the cancerous cells off from sugar, so they cannot go as rapidly.

Fun fact: She is also a big  fan of college basketball and the Boston Bruins!
