Monday 15th January 2018 - Prof Tim Underwood - 'From genome to clinic: tales from the oesophagus'
Tim will illustrate how early detection of oesophageal cancer is enabled by genome sequencing, and how large-scale sequencing of patients is uncovering the biology behind this disease, enabling life-saving surgery and treatment to be targeted to the individual.
Tim Underwood is a surgeon at University Hospital Southampton with a special interest in oesophageal cancer and minimally invasive surgical techniques, and also Professor of Gastrointestinal Surgery at the University of Southampton.
Following a Medical Research Council (MRC) Clinician Scientist Fellowship, he became a Cancer Research UK & Royal College of Surgeons of England Advanced Clinician Scientist Fellow in April 2017.
