He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1985 and undertook a research fellowship at The Royal Marsden Hospital and Institute of Cancer Research, London between 1998 and 1990. His research involved the development of novel agents for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer.
