I completed my PhD in Newcastle in 1987 before moving to the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, Oxford University as a Research Fellow to study DNA repair and drug resistance mechanisms in cancer.
I took up an academic appointment in urological research in the Department of Surgery at Newcastle University in 1993 and established a group of basic scientists and urologists with a strong translational research focus, primarily in prostate cancer. I have been actively involved in initiating and leading several National and European prostate cancer research networks.
A molecular and cell biologist by training, I study cell signalling in cancer. My current research focusses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that drive the progression to therapy-resistant, metastatic prostate cancer. A central theme of my research programme is the androgen receptor signalling cascade where my group has identified many critical epigenetic alterations that influence receptor function and created relevant cell models, including induced pluripotent stem cells. I have a number of ongoing biotech collaborations that involve the identification and assay development of biomarkers that distinguish indolent from aggressive prostate cancer.
