Dr Gail Horan

My areas of expertise include the management of Prostate/Bladder/Sarcoma cancers in adults and radiotherapy for children with cancer. I also treat haematological patients with Total body radiotherapy as part of the transplant team.

My current role

My research interests are improving outcomes for children with brain tumours, and recruiting to oncology trials in all the tumour sites I treat.
