Research description

I am a senior clinical oncology trainee currently undertaking a Clinical PhD Fellowship at the MRC Cancer Unit in Prof Ashok Venkitaraman's lab. My research is focused on understanding a novel mechanism by which the BRCA2 tumour suppressor protein prevents genomic instability, specifically its role within the damage-induced G2 checkpoint. My long-term ambition is to practise as a translational clinician scientist, advancing our understanding of the DNA-damage response to improve clinical radiotherapy outcomes, potentially through patient stratification and drug-radiotherapy combinations
