I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 1992 and subsequently trained in general medicine at The Royal London Hospital and Guy’s Hospital in London. I then completed Specialty training in Clinical Haematology at The Royal London Hospital, Addenbrooke’s Hospital and University College London Hospital. Whilst training I gained a PhD in aspects of haematopoietic stem cell differentiation. In 2002 I was awarded my CCST in Clinical Haematology and at the same time as continued my career in Academic Medicine with a Leukaemia Research Fund Bennett Senior Fellowship. In 2007 I was appointed Senior Lecturer in Immunology and Immunotherapy at UCL, and have since remained an active consultant haematologist.
My research group focuses on novel aspects of immune therapies for haematological malignancies, predominantly cellular and gene therapy. My clinical interest is in the field of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. I am currently secretary of the Clinical trials Committee of the British Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, a member of the NCRI Low Grade Lymphoma Subgroup and on the Editorial Board of the British Journal for Haematology.
