Research description

My research focus is in drug development and I translate preclinical findings on lead candidate agents into early phase clinical trials of novel therapeutic drugs as chief investigator, principal investigator and co-investigator in academic-led and industry-sponsored Phase I, II and III clinical trials, including first-in-human studies. My tumour site-specific focus is in hepato-pancreatico-biliary cancers, for which I am designing novel clinical trials based on preclinical research that has been performed at the Cambridge Pancreatic Cancer Centre. I am involved in projects of non-invasive imaging techniques that evaluate pharmacodynamic effects or show potential as early predictors for efficacy of anticancer drugs.
