    Dr Naomi Fersht graduated from the University of Cambridge before carrying out specialist clinical oncology training at the Royal Marsden and University College Hospitals. Her studies of cell cycle checkpoints, under Sir Paul Nurse, Nobel Laureate, earned her a PhD.

    As a consultant, Dr Fersht manages brain and spinal tumours using chemotherapy and radiotherapy, including as a combination chemorad regimen which requires a great deal of experience.
