Dr Ramsay Bowden

My current role

I split my time between clinical work for the NHS and research at the University of Cambridge. I see both adult and paediatric patients in general genetics clinics at Addenbrooke's and West Suffolk hospital. I also provide specialist genetics input to the national adult Ataxia Telangiectasia Service at Royal Papworth hospital.

My research focuses on investigating how damage to a cell's DNA is repaired. These processes are disrupted in rare genetic disorders such as Ataxia Telangiectasia, but also in many common cancers. By understanding the mechanisms behind this, I hope to develop new diagnostic tools and treatments.

Previous history

I completed my medical training at the University of Cambridge, qualifying in 2010. I went on to academic foundation training and and core medical training in the East of England. I started my clinical genetics registrar training in 2014. I took some time out of training to complete a PhD and came back to complete my clinical training in 2021. I was appointed as a locum assistant professor and honorary consultant in 2023.
