Professor Andrew Biankin

UofG Profile

Professor Andrew Biankin is the Director of the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre which has received support from The Howat Foundation. This Centre is focussed on taking the latest cutting edge scientific discoveries and translating them into improved treatments for people with cancer.  Our major focus is precision medicine, also called personalised medicine in order to match the right treatment to the right patient.  This is through a deep understanding of what makes each individual cancer tick at a molecular level and then either using the treatments we already have much better, or discovering new treatments for cancers such as leukaemia, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer and brain cancer as well as several others. The laboratory is equipped with the latest technologies to look deep into cancers and to find the right existing treatment, and to discover new vulnerabilities, or “Achilles heels” that can be targeted for treatment.
