Peter Gibbs-Lab team


The major focus of our lab is taking research efforts through to clinical impact.
Research in each tumour is led by an oncologist with sub-speciality expertise, with each clinician having significant clinical workload and trial involvement, which informs the research. This is all built on extensive collaboration with scientific partners within academia and industry.
