I am an academic hepatologist, looking after patients with primary liver cancer. My long term goal is to improve outcomes for these patients, in part by developing tools to detect their cancers earlier, but also by identifying novel therapeutic candidates to take forward into clinical use, alongside the biomarkers needed to implement them.
ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
My clinical role is that of lead physician within the Hepatopancreatobiliary (HPB) Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, co-ordinating the care of patients with hepatocellular cancer in Northern England.
My research role and responsibility is that of a senior lecturer and lead PI in the Hepatopancreatobiliary group in the Northern Institute for cancer research. I work closely with Dr Ruchi Shukla, who has recently joined the group, as well as with Professor John Lunec and Professor Steven Wedge form the NICR, as well as with Dr Fiona Oakley and Dina Tiniakos from ICM. We presently supervise 4 PhD students, with two more joining the group in September.
I have just completed 3 years serving as the UK representative on the European Association for Study of the Liver (EASL) governing board.

LIVER CANCER RESEARCH GROUP
Target discovery and validation
Our group is exploring the molecular pathogenesis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) arising on a background of obesity, diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We are particularly interested in the role played by the diseased tumour microenvironment / extracellular matrix in cancer development and progression. We have developed a dietary model where mice fed a high fat and high sugar diet develop NAFLD and HCC and we have been exploring this for novel targets to exploit as preventive or antitumour therapies. These include a sulfatase (SULF2) which is overexpressed in tumour activated stromal cells, that alters the sulfation status of matrix molecules, receptors and ligands for signalling pathways, up-regulating growth and migration. We are also studying the contribution of inflammatory cells such as neutrophils in HCC development and progression. An associated interest is in the response to damage that occurs in cancer cells – either as a result of inflammation related damage or chemo-radiotherapies. We have shown that the cancers survive damage and resist treatment partially as a result of increased DNA damage repair – DNA-PK in particular. We are exploring DNA-PK inhibition in models of HCC.
Prognostic and predictive biomarker development
HCC is the 6th most common cancer worldwide, but actually the 2nd commonest cause of cancer death. This is because the majority of those affected present at an advanced stage, with poor liver function consequent to underlying chronic liver disease, and we have no effective treatments. We do know that early detection of HCC in patients with cirrhosis can result in cure. It is tragic therefore, that even though we know the patient group at risk, we do not have effective screening or surveillance tools. With our liver group colleagues in the institute of cellular medicine, we have an interest in identifying genetic markers associated with HCC risk. With national and international collaborators, we are also exploring serum surveillance biomarkers. For patients in who we diagnose an HCC, it is often hard to know which treatment is best for them. This is partly because we rarely have tissue from their cancer – the diagnosis is usually made on imaging and biopsy is risky. So we have no robust biomarkers to know if one or other treatment is best. Guidelines advise treatment based largely on the risk of making liver function worse, rather than shrinking a tumour. We have a major interest therefore, in emerging ‘liquid biopsy’ tools – circulating tumour cells, circulating tumour DNA. We are exploring these methods in hope that we will be able to stratify treatment for our patients, as well as monitor responses, more effectively. We do this alongside characterising tissue samples changes in those patients where we have them – looking at SULF2 and DNA-PK amongst other things. To support these translational studies, we have created a liver cancer tissue bank, which presently has donated samples from over 500 of our patients with HCC.
