Research description

I am a CRUK Clinical Lecturer in the Early Detection Programme, and Honorary Speciality Registrar in Urology, with a research interest in genome stability and prostate cancer.

Mutations in genes like BRCA1 contribute to the development of various diseases including prostate cancer, but these also generate therapeutic vulnerabilities. My research aims are to improve our understanding of these pathways in cancer, and how they relate to disease progression, treatment response and drug resistance in the clinic. This will allow us to better identify and stratify patients to individualised therapies at earlier stages of disease.
