Professor Janes is Professor of Respiratory Medicine at University College London and Director of the lung cancer programme for London Cancer, and he has strong research interest in improving diagnostic techniques for lung cancer.

Professor Janes qualified in 1992. He leads a group interested in the pathogenesis of lung disease including cancer formation and its treatment with new biological and cellular therapies within UCL Respiratory Research Department.

We share a common goal to improve patient survival and experience by detecting lung cancer early, and by working together we hope to improve the outcome for patients diagnosed with lung cancer in the corporate and private sector”. 

Professor Janes says “I am pleased to become part of Check4Cancer’s team. I am committed to fighting lung cancer and support anything that might lead to an earlier detection of this brutal disease.”
