I continue to be actively involved in research into gastro-intestinal cancer.

I am an outdoor type of person although injuries have forced my retirement from rugby. I remain a keen hill-walker, a good skier and increasingly enthusiastic mountain biker. My family of a wife and three children and garden occupy the rest of my time!
