Low grade serous ovarian cancer affects young women; many are in their 20s or 30s. It is rare and has only been recognised as a separate entity in the last 15 years. Much more research is desperately required because the chemotherapy treatments routinely used to treat other forms of ovarian cancer do not work well in this disease.
The Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre brings together cancer scientists and clinicians from across the University of Edinburgh delivering outstanding cancer research. The co-located Edinburgh Cancer Centre provides cutting-edge oncological patient care to a quarter of the Scottish population.
Ovarian cancer is one of the research priority tumours for the Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre.

His team have provided national leadership on low grade serous ovarian cancer clinical trials and are now performing laboratory research to inform the next generation of low grade serous ovarian cancer clinical trials.
