    Research Statement

    Research
    My main research interests are in myeloproliferative disorders, acute myeloid leukaemia and chronic myeloid leukaemia. I have an active clinical practice and collaborate with scientists looking at the pathogenesis of the myeloproliferative disorders and in particular investigations of patients with idiopathic erythrocytosis. I also work on the pathogenesis and treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia.

    Clinical Trials
    With the clinical trials unit we have a number of phase three and phase two trials in the areas of acute myeloid leukaemia and chronic myeloid leukaemia and myeloproliferative disorders. We continually investigate for new and improved treatments in these disorders.
