This Centre is working at the forefront of the use of lasers in the treatment of cancer and other life threatening conditions. It works in partnership with the NHS and is supported by Moghissi Laser Trust (Charity No. 326689), which was established in 1984. The team has pioneered the development of photodynamic therapy (PDT) which combines the use of lasers with a photo-sensitive drug to provide highly targeted treatment.

Work continues to develop the effectiveness of PDT in different parts of the body and in the exciting new area of photo-detection (PD) which can identify abnormalities under laser light long before traditional techniques. Ongoing research, treatment and training is making a significant contribution to advances in effective laser therapies in the UK and overseas.

I have been supported by an excellent team of colleagues and associates who have helped us to achieve an international reputation funded primarily thr ough charitable donation.
