BSc, MD, FRCP
I graduated in medicine at UCL and UCH Medical School, and subsequently trained in medical oncology at UCH, Charing Cross Hospital London, and the Princess Margaret Hospital Toronto, before moving to UCL as a consultant in 1990.
I specialise in the treatment of gynaecological and colorectal cancers and am the lead medical oncologist for gynaecological cancers in the North London Cancer Network, where I am also the lead for clinical research. My other research interests are in clinical trials and he is head of the UCL Cancer Trials Centre, one of the NCRI-accredited national cancer trials centres funded by research grants from Cancer Research UK.
I have developed and led several national and international trials in gynaecological cancer and am currently leading two trials with novel drugs in ovarian cancer. I am a member of the NCRI clinical studies group for gynaecological cancers. I am also one of the UK representatives on the GCIG, the Gynaecological Cancer InterGroup, an international organisation for trials and treatment of gynaecological cancers.
I have many publications to my name in the field of ovarian and colorectal cancer, serve on editorial boards for professional journals and am a medical advisor to several pharmaceutical companies. I am an acknowledged international expert in ovarian cancer and have lectured widely on my research.
