Following this I trained as a medical oncologist on the Senior Registrar rotation of the Royal Marsden Hospital, London and Surrey. I received my Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Medical Oncology in 1997. In 1998 I was appointed as Senior Lecturer in Medical Oncology at University College London where I developed special interests in the treatment of melanoma, renal carcinoma and lung cancer, as well as undertaking clinical research into these conditions. In February 2001 I took up a new post as Senior lecturer in Medical Oncology at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital. I became a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2002. In October 2006 I took up a new post as Professor of Medical Oncology in the University of Cambridge.
