Mr Thomas Mitchell, FRCS
Clinician Scientist Fellow
Tom Mitchell's research programme focusses on understanding how kidney tumours initiate, evolve and evade treatment. The motivation for this body of work is provided by the patients he treats as a Consultant Urologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital where he specialises in the surgical treatment of kidney cancer.
“I am interested in deciphering how tumours evolve over many decades from normal healthy cells. Increasingly, my interest lies not only in understanding and modelling somatic mutations acquired in the developing tumour, but also how these cancer cells interact with their multi-cellular micro-environment. The over-arching aim of these approaches is to improve the clinical management of patients with cancer.”
