Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Neurosurgeon
University of Edinburgh, UK
As a neurosurgeon specialising in surgical neuro-oncology I have direct experience with carmustine wafers in the treatment of high grade glioma. My clinical work informs my interest in developing novel strategies for delivering chemotherapy focally in management of brain tumours. This led to the collaborations with Dr Unciti-Broceta developing a palladium activated prodrug. I also collaborate with the IMPACT (https://www.impact.eng.ed.ac.uk) team who are developing implantable microsystems for personalised anti-cancer therapy, which complements my interest in localised drug delivery.
