Research description

Dr Ferdia Gallagher studied medicine as an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge before completing his clinical studies at the University of Oxford. He trained as a radiologist at Addenbrooke?s Hospital in Cambridge. In 2005, he was awarded a Cancer Research UK (CRUK) and Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) clinical research training fellowship to undertake a PhD in Molecular Imaging at the Department of Biochemistry in Cambridge. This work focused on a new form of imaging termed hyperpolarized carbon-13 MRI that allows carbon metabolism to be imaged non-invasively. He is currently a CRUK Clinician Scientist Fellow at the CRUK Cambridge Research Institute, an Honorary Consultant Radiologist in the Department of Radiology in the University of Cambridge and a Research Fellow at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge. His main interest is in developing molecular imaging techniques for oncological radiology and how these can be translated into humans. The focus of this work is to develop new molecular biomarkers for the detection of cancer as well as methods to assess early response of tumours to treatment with chemotherapy.
