My oncology training was undertaken at St. Bartholomew’s, UCLH and Mount Vernon Hospitals; following my Fellowship, I undertook a postgraduate research degree at Imperial College School of Medicine, Hammersmith Hospital. There I investigated the potential for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) to demonstrate the biological effects of chemotherapy in tissue.
I have published a number of papers in this area and was awarded a PhD for my work. Subsequently I completed my post doctoral training at the Royal Marsden Hospital, principally with the Academic Urology Unit.
I specialise in the management of patients with genitourinary (bladder and prostate) and thoracic (lung and mesothelioma) malignancies. Furthermore I have expertise in the delivery of real time dynamic prostate brachytherapy for patients with early stage, localised prostate cancer. I am also a registered Cyberknife practitioner with a National referral practice and deliver stereotactic radiotherapy (SABR) in both the radical and palliative (for metastatic disease) setting.
Since taking up my present post I have been extensively involved with the development of the genitourinary and thoracic cancer services for the North East London Cancer Network and London Cancer.
I am an active participant in UK clinical trials and am principal investigator for the North East London Cancer Network for ten active studies. From these activities I have been involved with the development of Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) for treatment of prostate cancer, and chemo-radiation in bladder and lung cancer and stereotactic radiotherapy for lung and prostate cancer. My research interest in PET continues to develop with an emphasis on investigating the direct effects of radiotherapy on tissue and the effect of integration of novel therapies with radiation.
