Background

Mr Christopher Peters is a clinical senior lecturer and consultant upper GI surgeon at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust with a specialist interest in oesophageal and gastric cancer. His academic interest is molecular and clinical predictors of outcome in oesophageal adenocarcinoma, which was the topic of his PhD carried out in the Hutchison-MRC research centre, Cambridge, under the supervision of Professor Rebecca Fitzgerald and Mr Richard Hardwick. He is now attempting to develop clinically relevant ways of stratifying patients with this disease, thereby improving management strategies. He was a co-founder of the OCCAMS collaboration which is currently whole genome sequencing 500 oesophageal adenocarcinomas as part of the CRUK funded ICGC project. This is a large multicentre collaborative project with teams working together to better understand the underlying cause of this disease, plus developing better ways to predict outcome and achieve better survival rates.
