Job title: Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer and Consultant Clinical Oncologist

Department: Rosemere Cancer Centre

My main interests are in the treatment of prostate, bladder and testicular cancers, and in colorectal cancer. My MD thesis was in prostate cancer and I am passionate about raising awareness of prostate cancer and increasing funding of research. I am involved in national and international trials of state of the art radiotherapy and chemotherapy in urological cancers. I am also involved in novel treatments such as prostate cancer vaccine therapy.

I regularly talk at prostate cancer support groups and testicular cancer awareness groups and at fundraising events for the Rosemere Cancer Centre. I am a member of the National Cancer Research Network Prostate and Bladder Cancer Study Groups and co-chair national studies in bladder cancer treatment.
