I am a University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in the Department of Medical Genetics at Cambridge. I completed my medical degree in 1993 and trained Medical Oncology before completing my CCST in Medical Genetics. From 1999-2002 I undertook a PhD researching the role of Fanconi anemia gene mutations in the development of sporadic acute myeloid leukaemia. I held a Consultant post at Great Ormond Street Hospital before moving to McGill University, Montreal in 2005 where I worked on Faculty for six years before coming to Cambridge. Much of my research has been on the Fanconi Anemia genes and hereditary breast cancer predisposition but my interests cover all areas of hereditary cancer and translating the recent advances in genomic technology into clinical practice.
