Oxford Cancer is pleased to announce the endowment of a Chair in Clinical Oncology, thanks to generous philanthropic support from The Howat Foundation.

The Howat Foundation, founded by Malcolm and Margaret Howat in 2009, supports translational research benefiting cancer patients.

Their £3M gift, together with a further £1.5M from the Oxford Endowment Challenge Fund, will fund the Malcolm and Margaret Howat Chair in Clinical Oncology, a new permanent post currently held by Geoff Higgins, Associate Professor in the Department of Oncology.

Geoff, who is also Honorary Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Oxford University Hospitals, runs laboratory and clinical research groups focused on developing treatments that make tumour cells more sensitive to radiotherapy.
