Keith is a Professor of Developmental Signalling at The University of Manchester. His interests lie in how cells of the breast communicate with each other during its development and turnover of breast cells with the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. He is particularly interested in understanding how this communication breaks down leading to breast cancer and whether understanding these processes can point to new therapies. He is currently researching how cell communication changes with increasing breast density to see whether this can shed more light on how high breast density predisposes women to breast cancer.
