Dr Sally Rogers

Research Fellow

 Living Systems Institute 

 

Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter, Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD

Overview

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the lab of Steffen Scholpp, investigating the role of Wnt signalling in gastric cancer. My previous research has covered many aspects of molecular and cellular biology, from evolution of the immune system to regulation of gene expression post bone marrow transplant, all with a common theme of the structure and function of cell signalling receptors. I have worked in research institutes in both the UK and Canada. In the Scholpp lab, I use a number of molecular, cell culture and imaging techniques to study how Wnt ligands produced by cancer associated fibroblasts in the stroma induce metastasis of gastric tumour cells. 

I enjoy teaching, and currently contribute to BIO2088, BIO3086 and BIO3077. I have previously held a Senior lecturer position, and have experience of teaching across many topics and levels.
