Cancer Research UK announces the appointment of Dr James Larkin as a new Senior Clinical Advisor in clinical research.

Dr Larkin’s new role aims to accelerate the progress of the charity’s clinical research portfolio. He will also support the charity in helping ensure the UK can continue to participate in clinical trials across Europe after Brexit.  The role will work alongside Cancer Research UK’s three other Clinical Advisors who specialise in surgery, primary care and children’s cancer.

Dr Larkin said “My focus in this new role will be to ensure the best clinical trials are being run to speed up progress in research and improve treatments for patients.”
