Cancer Research Clinical Trials Fellow. As part of my fellowship I will spend a 3 month secondment at the Southampton Clinical Trials Unit (SCTU) to gain expertise in early phase clinical trial design and immunomodulatory approaches to cancer.

I am a Cancer Research UK clinical trials fellow and medical oncology registrar.  During this fellowship, I will gain experience in all aspects of interventional clinical trial design, management and delivery.

My clinical interest is in the delivery of Phase I clinical trials with an emphasis on studies using potentially synergistic combinations of precision medicines, immunotherapies and antibody drug conjugates.  I will spend 3 months at the SCTU to gain expertise in early phase clinical trial design and immunomodulatory approaches to cancer, enhancing my training from a clinical and translational perspective.  Through this fellowship I hope to gain the requisite skillset to become an Early Phase Clinical Trialist.

My experience to date has provided a focused pathway in clinical research, predominantly in B cell malignancies, using targeted therapies.  I undertook a 3 year clinical research fellowship in haemato-oncology within The Ernest and Helen Scott Haematological Research Institute at the University of Leicester, during which I obtained considerable experience with early phase commercial clinical studies in patients with B cell malignancies, over and above my laboratory training.  Through the ECMC Junior Investigator Network (JING), I had the opportunity to network with junior trainees and investigators, through membership and more recently as chair of JING.
