During my research career I have mainly focussed on gynaecological cancers, especially ovarian cancer. I am a member of a worldwide ovarian tumour tissue consortium, and am involved in identifying molecular markers that can be used to diagnose and treat ovarian cancers. I have strong links with Royal Derby Hospital, and am currently the Chief investigator of a randomised, controlled clinical trial investigating the effects of Yoga on patients undergoing treatment for gynaecological cancers at Derby.
