    "CTCF is an essential gene for the normal organisation of DNA in cells. Our team has discovered that CTCF is genetically deleted at high rates in the most aggressive and deadly types of endometrial cancer. This project will determine how CTCF deletions contribute to the aggressive nature of these tumours."
