I am a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and a Professor in Surgery & Cancer Genetics at the University of Birmingham. Clinically I have interests in laparoscopic cancer surgery, TATME, advanced colorectal cancer and pelvic floor disorders. I provide a specialist national service as part of a NHS rare diseases network for patients with polyposis, inherited cancer syndromes and Lynch Syndrome. I also provide a specialist tertiary regional pelvic floor service. I run a research group based within the Institute of Cancer and Genomic Sciences at the University of Birmingham, funded by Cancer Research UK, the MRC and the Wellcome Trust. We use advanced genome sequencing techniques to answer translationally relevant questions about cancer biology. My current cancers of interest are colorectal, sarcoma and oesophagogastric although I collaborate with colleagues researching AML, ALL, CLL, lung, bladder, brain and skin cancer. I am an experienced bioinformatician and utilise big datasets to answer questions about cancer biology at the population level - for more details of my lab go to
