Cells have evolved intricate repair mechanisms to restore the various types of DNA damage, but incomplete or improper repair of DNA lesions can cause mutations or rearrangements of DNA segments. These events usually lead to cell death, but can also give the cell a growth advantage that can contribute to the development of cancer. Lianne Vriend investigates new strategies for enhancing the effects of tumour targeting radio and chemotherapy by inhibiting specific DNA repair pathways.
