Professor of Respiratory Medicine, UCL

I'm a professor of Respiratory Medicine, and a clinician scientist studying lung cancer and general respiratory/ lung diseases.

I work as a respiratory consultant at UCLH with a particular interest in Lung Cancer, mesothelioma, interventional and diagnostic bronchoscopy and early lung cancer detection. I'm also Head of Respiratory Research Department at UCL, director of the Lung Cancer Board for London Cancer, lead for Pulmonary at the International Society of Cellular Therapies and Vice-Chair of the National ‘Clinical Expert Group’ on Lung Cancer.

My research focus is on lung cancer pathogenesis and the development of novel therapies to treat both early and late stage disease. I now lead on four clinical trials, two diagnostic and two therapeutic aiming to improve lung cancer patient outcomes.
