Cancer Research UK clinical trials Unit
Our work in Southampton is particularly focusing on oesophageal, bowel, and head and neck cancers, as well as immunotherapy, genetics and nutrition.
For example, Professor Tim Elliott and Dr Edd James are investigating how to train our immune cells to recognise and attack cancer. And Professor Peter Johnson is working to investigate how lymphoma cells survive the despite damage to their DNA so we can learn how to better treat this disease.
Professor Diana Eccles is studying more than 3, 000 young women with breast cancer to find out how inherited gene faults play a part in the disease. This could lead to earlier diagnosis and more targeted screening and treatment.
Meanwhile, surgeon Dr Emma King is investigating why patients with certain types of head & neck cancers respond better than others to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. And Dr Simon Crabb is testing a new treatment for men with advanced prostate cancer.
Dr Anthony Williams leads the Southampton Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, part of our national network. We also support 13 research nurses in the city, looking after patients taking part in clinical trials of new therapies.
