Russell Banner, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales

Russell's undergraduate training was at Christ's College, Cambridge and then at Guy's, Kings and St Thomas' Medical School in London, qualifying in 2002. He trained as a junior doctor in London and became convinced of a career in Clinical Oncology after working for six months in the Royal Marsden Hospital. Russell gained Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists in 2010 and Advanced Radiotherapy Clinical Research Fellowship at Velindre Cancer Centre in 2011. He completed his MSc with the Institute of Cancer Research in London in 2013 researching Human Papilloma Virus specific T-cell immune responses before and after chemoradiotherapy for oropharyngeal cancer.

Russell took up his post as a Consultant Clinical Oncologist in the South West Wales Cancer Centre in 2013 where his specialist tumour sites are head & neck and gynaecological cancers. He is trained in the use of Proton Beam Therapy and looks forward to developing the evidence base for the benefit of this treatment in these tumour sites.
