Research Interests

Mr Lordan has a special interest in translational research involving the genomics and proteomics of metastatic colorectal cancer in the liver. He has also investigated the histological effects of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy on liver parenchyma in correlation with the clinical peri-operative and long-term outcomes. His biological interest lies in the discovery of two potential biomarkers which may accurately differentiate metastatic colorectal cancer from normal tissues with a potential accuracy of >96%. Further study of these biomarkers is ongoing and will lead to a multi-centre randomised trial with MRC funding. Mr Lordan holds patented biomarkers for the potential detection, prognosis and surveillance of primary and metastatic colorectal cancer. At Royal Free London and UCL, he was appointed as the Principle Investigator for the STRASS Trial, A phase III randomised study of preoperative radiotherapy plus surgery versus surgery alone for patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas (EORTC).
