Translational research into mechanisms of action and resistance of endocrine therapies, both in the treatment and prevention of breast cancer (University of Manchester)
Treatment of patients with early and advanced breat cancer at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospitals of South Manchester (Wythenshawe).
I graduated from The University of Nottingham Medical School in 1993 and completed basic training in medicine in Derby. I began specialist training in Medical Oncology in 1999 at The Christie Hospital and was awarded CCT in 2006. In the same year I was awarded my PhD from the University of Manchester, performed in the laboratory of Dr Robert Clarke, defining a previously unidentified role for prolactin signaling in breast cancer stem/progenitor cell regulation. Following a period as a senior clinical research fellow I was appointed as a Senior Lecturer at The University of Manchester in 2010. My professional time is divided between the clinical care of cancer patients at The Christie Hospital and both basic and clinical research at The CRUK Manchester Institute and The Christie respectively.
