PhD, MRCP, FRCR
I undertook oncology training at St. Bartholomew’s, UCLH and Mount Vernon Hospitals. Following my Fellowship, I undertook a postgraduate research degree at Imperial College School of Medicine, Hammersmith Hospital. There I investigated the potential for Positron Emission Tomography to demonstrate the biological effects of chemotherapy in tissue. I have published a number of papers in this area and was awarded a PhD for my work. Subsequently I completed my post doctoral training at the Royal Marsden Hospital, principally with the Academic Urology Unit.
I specialise in the management of patients with genitourinary (bladder and prostate) and thoracic (lung and mesothelioma) malignancies.
Since taking up my present post I have been extensively involved with the development of the genitourinary and thoracic cancer services for the North East London Cancer Network.
I am an active participant in UK clinical trials and is principal investigator for the North East London Cancer Network for ten active studies. From these activities, I have been involved with the development of Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy for treatment of prostate cancer, and chemo-radiation in bladder and lung cancer. My research interest in Positron Emission Tomography continues to develop with an emphasis on investigating the direct effects of radiotherapy on tissue and the effect of integration of novel therapies with radiation.
