Dr Guinn welcomes applications from students who want to study postgraduate research degrees (MSc by Research, MD and PhD) in the Centre for Biomedicine, Hull York Medical School. My group is particularly interested in difficult to diagnose and/or treat diseases. Currently this includes acute leukaemias, ovarian and lung cancer, and endometriosis, and has led to the identification of biomarkers for survival, target for therapies and improved our understanding of the biological basis of disease.
