Consultant in Medical Oncology, University College London Hospitals
I qualified as a doctor at Guys and St Thomas’ Medical School. I trained in medical oncology in London including St George’s Hospital, the Royal Free Hospital and University College London Hospital. I completed my PhD in integrative genomic profiling of cancer, working with Professor Alan Ashworth at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital. I also attained a research fellowship at the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL, maintaining a strong link with them in order to accelerate the development of novel cancer clinical trial designs.
I am a consultant in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Unit at UCLH. I am also the Clinical Lead for the Cancer of Unknown Primary Service, and the Acute Oncology Service at UCLH. I am actively involved in gastrointestinal oncology clinical trial research. I also have a specialist interest in treating patients with Cancer of Unknown Primary, their entry into clinical trials, and management of oligometastatic disease.
I am the Principal Investigator of the UCL/UCLH Gastrointestinal Cancer Translational Research Biobank. I am the Chief Investigator and Principal Investigator for a number of national and international trials. I also undertake early phase clinical trials in the private sector at The Sarah Cannon Research Institute, which is associated with the LOC in Harley Street.
