Implications for health: We are testing biomarkers and novel targets for drug development as well as population screening Grants: Cancer Research UK, National Cancer Research Institute and Industry > £10,000,000. Major Collaborations: include Cancer Research UK, Oxford University, UK and McMaster University, Canada. Achievements from past work. We were the first group (in collaboration); to identify oesophageal stem cells in man and the mechanism of clonal expanision, elucidate the pathways implicated in GI cancer (growth factor receptor and oncogene activation, altered P-cadherin adhesion, β-catenin nuclear translocation, TNFα and gastrin over expression and aberrant biology), E-cadherin germ line mutations in Caucasians and an evidence base for the management of many GI conditions. Member of board (current): National Cancer Research Institute Committees in GI Cancer and Translational Science and various international medical journals. Publications includes 100 publications in journals such as the American Journal of Pathology, British Medical Journal, Cancer Research, Gastroenterology, Human Molecular Genetics, Journal Biological Chemistry, Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Lancet, Oncogene. Education: I have edited authoritative textbooks in a variety of fields including molecular biology and GI Oncology.BRIEF BIOGRAPHY I first trained in GI at the University of Glasgow (GI genetics) and then the University of Dundee (population and laboratory research in oesophageal cancer). I was then awarded two GI fellowships first jointly at Cancer Research UK and Imperial College London (laboratory research in colitis and colorectal cancer) and then at the University of California, San Francisco (GI cancer genetics). I have been actively recruited at Principal Investigator/Professorial level to several Institutes, the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester and currently to the University of Oxford, where I have led internationally competitive research groups Personal web page: (
