MBChB / London / 2001
Intercalated BSc in the History of Medicine

I completed an original research project for my MSc in Oncology on the role of PET-CT in the pre-operative staging of gastric cancer.

I spent three years as a Clinical Research Fellow at the Gray Institute of Radiation Oncology and Biology, part of the University of Oxford, undertaking independent research towards a higher research qualification (DPhil) in Radiobiology. The clinical element of the research explored the role of perfusion imaging to measure tumour vascular parameters in response to radiotherapy given before or alongside radio-sensitising drugs in the context of two radiotherapy clinical trials in colorectal cancer. I have also managed a phase II trial in chem-radiotherapy for locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
