Professor David Jayne

Professor David Jayne qualified from the University of Wales College of Medicine in 1989. His surgical training has been in North West Deanery, The Yorkshire & Humber Deanery, and as overseas Colorectal Fellow at Singapore General Hospital. During this time he was Clinical Fellow for the MRC CLASSIC trial, investigating laparoscopic versus open surgery for colorectal cancer. In 2011, he was appointed Professor of Surgery at the University of Leeds. His clinical interests include laparoscopic and robotic surgery. He is Chair of the Research & Audit Committee and Executive Member to the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain & Ireland. His research interests include the molecular biology of colorectal cancer (tumour metabolism and metastasis), new technologies for minimally invasive and robotic surgery, and intraoperative fluorescence for stratified colorectal cancer surgery. He is Chief Investigator on several NIHR portfolio studies, including MRC/EME/NIHR ROLARR trial (a pan-world trial evaluating robotic surgery for rectal cancer), NIHR/HTA/FIAT (collagen plug for fistula-in-ano), and MRC/EME/NIHR GliSTen (intraoperative fluorescence for stratified colon cancer surgery). In 2012, he was awarded an NIHR Research Professorship to develop new surgical technologies for minimally invasive surgery. view webcast...
