New Editor-in-Chief for Clinical Oncology

Monday 12 April 2021

The RCR is pleased to announce that Professor Ananya Choudhury has been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Oncology and will take up her role on 1 May 2021. In addition to being a prominent academic, Professor Choudhury is a practising clinical oncologist specialising in bladder and prostate cancer based at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. Having joined The Christie as a specialist in urology and sarcoma in 2008, since 2013 Professor Choudhury has focused on radiotherapy-related research in prostate and bladder cancers. She is clinical lead for advanced radiotherapy, including the MRLinac project, and is co-Group Leader of The Translational Radiobiology Group within the Division of Cancer Sciences, University of Manchester.

Professor Choudhury’s current research aims to optimise and personalise radiotherapy using new techniques or imaging technology to deliver high doses of radiotherapy while minimising side-effects, and predictive biomarkers to determine which patients benefit from different treatments. She is a member of a member of work stream 2 of the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad) and of the NCRI Bladder Clinical Studies Group. She also brings a wealth of editorial experience to the role having been a Senior Editor for the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics (The Red Journal) and a member of the Clinical Oncology Editorial Board.

This marks an exciting new chapter for Clinical Oncology. As Professor Choudhury takes up her role we have updated the article submission process to make it more streamlined with the hope that researchers will find submitting to Clinical Oncology fast and simple. We look forward to working closely with Professor Choudhury to continue the success of the journal, which has gone from strength to strength under the leadership of the current Editor-in-Chief, Professor Charlotte Coles. We would like to thank Professor Coles for her tireless work and enthusiasm for the journal.

'I'm very excited to be taking on the role of Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Oncology. It’s the oncology journal that so many of us have grown up with, so I'm thrilled to be part of its future.’ 

Professor Ananya Choudhury
