Earlier research undertaken by the team at the Gillies McIndoe Research Institute has identified and characterised cancer stem cells in tongue cancer, buccal mucosal (inner cheek) cancer, and lip cancer. The team has also shown that cancer stem cells in tongue cancer and buccal mucosal cancer express the renin-angiotensin system.
