Research description

I am a clinical trialist interested in developing new treatments for advanced disease, identifying and managing those at risk of disease. My current clinical interests are the research and management of kidney cancer. In kidney cancer I have been particularly involved in the development of tyrosine kinase inhibitors as therapeutic agents.

I am currently on 5 years partial leave of absence to work in AstraZeneca, where I am currently responsible for oncology trials from first in man to Phase II.
