GILBERT, Dr Duncan

Consultant Clinical Oncologist and Senior Lecturer in Cancer and Clinical Trials,
Sussex Cancer Centre and MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL
“Updates in anal cancer”

I qualified from Cambridge University in 1998 and first came to Brighton as a medical senior house officer in 1999. I then joined the Pan-Thames training scheme in clinical oncology rotating between The Royal Marsden Hospitals and the Sussex Cancer Centre. After obtaining the FRCR exam I spent six months as a volunteer oncologist in Bhaktapur, Nepal before returning to The Institute of Cancer Research to pursue a PhD in the molecular biology of testicular cancer.

Having completed my training I commenced my current job as Consultant Clinical Oncologist treating urological and lower gastrointestinal cancers in Sussex in November 2010. In addition to this clinical work, I have a number of ongoing projects looking to better understand and target treatment in rectal and anal cancer. I am currently the lead clinician for the colorectal MDT at BSUH and audit lead for Oncology.

From February 2014 I am spending a day a week attached to the Clinical Trials Unit at the MRC/UCL, involved with national trials in prostate and colorectal cancers. I am a member of the Clinical Studies Group for anorectal cancers at the National Cancer Research Institute, developing advanced radiotherapy techniques and the next UK clinical trials for anal and rectal cancers. I am on the editorial board for Clinical Oncology, the journal of the Royal College of Radiologists
