Professor Margaret Frame OBE, PhD

FAK Biology Adviser

Professor Margaret Frame is a Science Director at Cancer Research UK (Edinburgh Centre) and the Chair of Cancer Biology at the University of Edinburgh. She has spent years working on a specialised molecular network that’s responsible for controlling how cells stick to one another, move and spread. She’s found that a key molecule in this so-called ‘adhesion network’, called FAK, can affect the environment around tumours and help the cancer cells escape attack by the immune system.
