David Noble

Dr Noble trained at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, and was a Cancer Research UK Clinical Research Fellow from 2016-2019. Whilst undertaking this fellowship, he worked as part of the Cambridge University Computational Radiotherapy Research Group, and undertook a PhD in Adaptive Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancer, supervised by Professor Neil Burnet and Dr Raj Jena.

During this time, he also spent 18 months working as a consulting researcher for Microsoft Research in Cambridge.

He joined the Edinburgh Cancer Centre in August 2020, and works as a Consultant Clinical Oncologist treating both Head & Neck Cancer, and GU malignancy. This role includes dedicated research time, and Dr Noble works closely with Professors McLaren and Nailon as part of the Edinburgh Radiotherapy Research Consortium.

His research interests include advanced imaging and image analysis techniques, cancer outcome and toxicity modelling, and applications for artificial intelligence in radiation oncology. He also has a special interest in Adaptive Radiotherapy, and recently contributed to an Estro initiative to survey Adaptive workflows and techniques across Europe, and assess barriers to wider implementation.

Dr Noble is delighted to be joining a vibrant radiotherapy research community in Scotland, and is working closely on collaborative projects with colleagues in Glasgow, and around the country.
