Thomas Layton


Postdoctoral Clinical Research Fellow

  • BMS-Oxford Research Fellow

Thomas studied Medicine at the University of Manchester graduating with distinction. His first introduction to research was during an intercalated BSc in Anatomical Sciences with a thesis entitled Investigating neuroendocrine markers of small cell lung cancer,  which was awarded a Wolfson Foundation research scholarship.

Thomas then undertook his foundation training in Oxford and over this period completed a Oxford-Celgene research fellowship working towards a DPhil in Cell and Molecular Biology. This research utilised advanced single cell technologies including CyTOF and scRNA-seq to define key molecular and cellular pathways governing fibrosis in Dupuytren's disease.

Thomas is now starting his core surgical training in Oxford and continuing his collaboration with BMS-Celgene as supervisor of a postdoctoral research fellowship aiming to explore and uncover central regulators of human liver fibrosis.
