About me

I graduated from the University of Glasgow Medical School in 1986 and undertook specialist oncology training in Glasgow and on Merseyside.

I have more than 15 years experience at consultant level, based in the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre. My specialist clinical practice deals exclusively with gastro-intestinal malignancies (colorectal, oesophageal, stomach, pancreatic and anal cancers).

Special clinical interests include the use of adjuvant (post-operative) and neo-adjuvant (pre-operative) therapies, the incorporation of new drugs into clinical practice, the use of combinations of radiation & chemotherapy and the treatment of metastatic disease.

I am also actively involved in clinical research for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers and am co-investigator of a number of ongoing GI clinical trials. Previous research has included laboratory work examining mechanisms of chemotherapy drug resistance, as well as clinical studies evaluating new drugs and novel methods to improve the management of rectal cancer
