Mr Grant D Stewart BSc MBChB PhD Edin, MA Cantab, FRCSEd (Urol)
Mr Stewart is an academic surgeon at the University of Cambridge, where he is Lead for Surgical Oncology, with a focus on developing and promoting surgery related clinical trials and translational research. As University Lecturer in Urological Surgery, Grant has a specific interest in optimising management of patients with initially localised renal cancer, an area of great need within the disease. In order to make practice changing developments in this area Mr Stewart has developed a range of interlinked clinical trials and translational research which are all underpinned by clinical excellence in managing renal cancer at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. To deliver on the above goals, Grant coordinates the Cambridge Renal Cancer Collaboration (CamRenCan) a group of 40 clinicians, translational researchers and basic scientists across the Cambridge Biomedical Campus with a shared interest in renal cancer research. His research metrics are: £47 million research grant/clinical trial income and 130 peer reviewed publications (including in Cell, Science, Science Translational Medicine, Cancer Discovery).
