    Martin graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and gained general medical experience in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, becoming a member of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) in 2000. Since then he has been working in cancer care, training in Medical Oncology at the Oxford Radcliffe and Royal Marsden NHS Trusts. During this time, he achieved a PhD at the Institute for Cancer Research, London, and was awarded the EORTC-PAMM Young Investigator Award in 2004. He completed his specialist training in Medical Oncology in 2008 and was appointed as a UCL Clinical Senior Lecturer and UCH Consultant in Medical Oncology in 2009. Since then he has been running a research-based practice and has been principal / chief investigator for more than 20 early and late phase clinical trials.

    Martin is involved in the management of patients with both lung and head and neck cancers. He is interested in drug development and in using the increasing understanding of cancer biology to design studies that distinguish patient populations most likely to gain benefit from new drugs and new drug combinations. He has a particular interest in the cancer biology that leads to the development of both lung and head and neck cancers.
