Research interests

Dr Howell’s area of interest is the genetics and molecular mechanisms of disease. Her primary focus is ovarian epithelial cancer with goals of improving understanding of the causes and progression of this disease and identification of new biomarkers which may facilitate earlier diagnosis. She is developing novel genetic mouse models of ovarian cancer in which to study the complex interplay of hormonal, genetic and other factors that leads to this disease. In addition, she is undertaking in vitro studies to search for novel regulators of signalling pathways that are implicated in ovarian cancer development.
