Dr. Jim Brown
Dr. Jim Brown was a specialist registrar in respiratory medicine and a clinical research fellow funded by the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundationworking towards completion of his PhD with Dr. Janes' group. He investigated the application of novel optical technologies to develop a cost effective high through-put test to screen for lung cancer in its earliest stages. His other main research interest was the biology of pre-invasive lung cancer and the development of a cell culture method for investigating early lung carcinogenesis. He ran the SPECTRAL study and is training in interventional bronchoscopy and EBUS at UCLH. In 2012 with two team mates he completed the 'Enduroman Arch to Arc' (90 mile run from Marble Arch in London to the coast, swam the English Channel and cycled 180 miles from Calais to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris) raising the funds to launch the Lungs for Living website and charity.
