Extensive expertise in clinico-laboratory research in leukaemia in adults. (Immunology, biochemical, molecular biological and clinical aspects) Clinical trials in leukaemia (adult) and malignant lymphoma. Population study methodology in haematology and cancer. Organisation of regional and supra-regional clinical and laboratory study groups in haematological oncology. (PACE - population adusted clinical epidemiology group).
Experienced clinical teacher and post-graduate trainer for Specialist Registrars. Organisation and management of academic and clinical departments. Consultant for introduction of PACE programmes in diverse areas of medicine.
During the existence of the clinico-laboratory group, major experience and results have allowed the team to be regarded as one of the UK leaders in management and investigation in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in adults, Hodgkin's disease and aspects of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Much of the laboratory programme relates to these diseases. In addition, the group is regarded as one of the leaders in investigation of graft versus host disease biology in vitro. The overall clinical programme has developed to provide a novel population-based approach to clinical research work, designated as population-adjusted clinical epidemiology (PACE). The next four years will see evolution and progression in all the above mentioned areas with an emphasis taken on applied laboratory activity related to the clinical research areas indicated. It is anticipated that Newcastle will become the major organisational centre for haematological clinical research on a supra-regional basis, including Scotland and the rest of the North of England.
