University of Cambridge
I am an academic consultant urologist with a strong interest in translational and clinical research to improve patient outcomes coupled with delivering excellent clinical care. I have over 17 years’ experience in undertaking and leading research and 15 years’ experience practicing in clinical urology, 10 of these as a consultant. My primary interest is in uro-oncology and in particular prostate cancer but I am also trained in all aspects of general urology. As a University Lecturer in the University of Cambridge I lead my own research programme centred on clinical and translation research in prostate cancer. My research is focused on improving curative outcomes of men with prostate cancer and the use of integrated biomarkers for risk stratification and to guide therapy selection. To achieve this I work in close collaboration with colleagues from many different disciplines. I established the Cambridge Urology Translational and Clinical Trials (CUTRACT) office to co-ordinate the urology research programme in the University of Cambridge. This incorporates the Cambridge Urology Bio-repository which holds over 5000 tissue, biological fluids and data from men with urological malignancies; one of the largest such bio-repositories in the UK. I am a member of international consortia exploring the genetics of prostate cancer (ICGC-Prostate) and in clinical management of the disease (Movember GAP3). I also co-lead the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre Urological Malignancies programme. I am also an inaugural member of the Pan Prostate Cancer Group looking into the genetics of prostate cancer. I established and lead the Academic Urology Group in the University department of surgery in 2014. In this role I am responsible for all academic urology trainees in the department. I work in the department of urology of Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge University Hospital Trust as an honorary consultant urologist.
