The goals of Dr. Nurse's laboratory are to better understand the global cellular networks which regulate the eukaryotic cell cycle, cell form and cell growth. These cellular controls are fundamental to the growth, development and reproduction of all living organisms. They are also relevant to understanding disease particularly cancer. Unrestricted cell proliferation during cancer is often associated with altered cell cycle and cell growth controls, and shape changes are associated with metastatic cells when they are escaping their tissue of origin and migrating elsewhere in the body.
