I have had 30 years experience in cancer research since obtaining my PhD studying the biochemistry of complex crabohydrtaes at the University of Manchester Paterson Laboratories in 1982. Developed and interest in the pathology of angiogenesis which was best exemplied by a  landmark paper in Science in 1985 "Angiogenesis induced by degradation products of hyaluronic acid" which now has 839 citations. Became interested in molecular biology and moved to Professor TM Dexters group at the Paterson in 1985 where I worked to define the molecular mechnaisms underlying myelopoiesis. A high point was the development of a new method of subtractive cloning which was used, most notably, by Vogelstein's group to clone p21 (Waf1/CIP1). In 1997 took up my current post of senior lecturer in gynaecological oncology at the University of Manchester.
