Victoria Sanz-Moreno


Victoria Sanz Moreno is a group leader at Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophyics, King's College London. She holds a Cancer Research UK Career Development Fellowship. She received The Royal Society University Research Fellowship (declined to accept CR-UK). She received Applied Biosystems-EACR 40th Anniversary Research Award, Marie Curie Intra-European Post-doctoral Fellowship, Lady Tata Memorial Trust Post-doctoral Fellowship and the University of Cantabria Pre-doctoral Fellowship.
She has been awarded the 2017 BSCB Women in Cell Biology Early Career Medal. Her group is interested in the actomyosin cytoskeleton and in transcription factors, and how the crosstalk between the two influences invasive and metastatic behaviour in cancer cells.

My group is working on identifying molecular cues that will aid in tumour progression and metastatic dissemination. Tumour cells use Rho GTPases to regulate their cytoskeleton; therefore, these proteins play a key role in regulating tumour initiation and dissemination. My lab combines 'OMICs', state of the art microscopy in 3D matrices, molecular biology and patient information to identify molecular determinants driven by Rho GTPase signalling that correlate with cancer progression and metastatic potential. At the same time, we are very focused on identifying novel therapeutic approaches to target cancer-stromal interactions.
