I qualified in medicine at Oxford University, having already undertaken a PhD in anticancer drug development. I undertook specialist training in Medical Oncology in Birmingham before being appointed as Consultant at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Addenbrooke’s Hospital) in 1996 and subsequently Associate Lecturer at the University of Cambridge. I directed the chemotherapy service at Addenbrooke’s Hospital until 2014 and then focussed my interests in leading clinical research.
I am NIHR lead for Cancer Late Phase and International Trials and CRN Eastern Cancer Specialty Lead. I chaired the NCRI Skin Cancer Clinical Studies Group from 2012 – 2017 and am currently a member of the NCRI pancreatic cancer studies subgroup. My specialist interests are melanoma and pancreaticobiliary cancers and have published widely in these areas. I am chief investigator of multiple academic and industry-sponsored national and international trials.
