Professor of Neuro-Oncology and Cancer Biology / Co-Director CBTRC
University of Nottingham, UK
Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC)
My expertise is in molecular neuro-oncology, functional imaging, biomarkers, localised drug delivery and clinical trials. In particular, I have significant expertise in intraventricular chemotherapy predominantly using etoposide. I am also chief UK investigator for the SIOP ependymoma II trial.
Tumour type: Ependymoma, High Grade Glioma, Medulloblastoma.
Existing collaborations relevant to drug delivery
