Theme lead: Professor Ferdia Gallagher

Professor Ferdia Gallagher is a Cancer Research UK Senior Research Fellow, Head of the Department of Radiology at the University of Cambridge, and an Honorary Consultant Radiologist at Cambridge University Hospitals. He leads the Clinical Molecular Imaging Group in the Department of Radiology and the preclinical imaging group in the Anne McLaren Building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

He has expertise in metabolic imaging using MRI and PET for stratification of tumours and response to therapy. The group has a particular interest in understanding the molecular basis of metabolism in a range of cancers, and how novel non-invasive imaging methods to probe this metabolism can be translated into patient studies. The ultimate goal of his work is to develop new imaging biomarkers of early detection and treatment response for patient benefit.
