BiographyMuch of my research has been based on the study of patients and families with rare diseases and covers topics such as identifying novel genes and the links between genetic variations and disease complications. Identifying the genetic basis of rare diseases such as von Hippel-Lindau disease, Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome and others has provided insights into basic cellular processes that can, in some cases, then enable the development of novel therapies. More immediately the implementation of improved genetic testing in the NHS has enabled improved management of families with hereditary tumour (e.g. kidney cancer and phaeochromocytoma) syndromes.
