Tim Maughan


Professor Maughan will lead the Clinical Research Programme at the CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology, aiming to deliver a step change in the effectiveness of radiotherapy through the evaluation of novel scientific approaches derived from the Institute's scientists in hypothesis driven clinical trials. In addition he aims to identify means to select patients for appropriate therapy through the use of functional imaging and biomarkers.
