Postgraduate Urological Research:

Professor Shergill has established The North Wales and North West Urological Research Centre (https://www.nw2urc.com/) in conjunction with Professor Stephen Fon Hughes. This is a clinical collaboration between hospitals in North Wales and North West England and research institutions in the region also. NW2URC have registered several research projects for clinical research fellows to attain PhD and Masters degrees. The studies are potentially ground-breaking, assessing novel biomarker profiles to predict post-operative complications, clinical outcomes and to predict cancer recurrence and progression.

Between 2002 and 2004 Professor Shergill undertook a period of full-time research in patients undergoing Radical Prostatectomy surgery for prostate cancer at the Institute of Urology, University of London.

During this research period, he used one of the most innovative and recently developed techniques in molecular pathology - The Tissue Microarray - and was, at that time, one of the only clinician scientists in the UK who was using and developing Tissue Microarray techniques.
