    Mr Smith completed his surgical training in Ireland, as a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland Higher Surgical Training scheme in 1998. After graduation, he joined the General Surgical Oncology Fellowship at the University of Toronto, before taking up a post at The Royal Marsden. His postgraduate research degree with Professors TG Cotter (Biochemistry & Cell Biology, BioSciences Institute), and HP Redmond (Department of Surgery) in University College Cork, Ireland, investigated the effect of tumour heterogeneity of molecular profiles, and the mechanisms driving local recurrence after cancer surgery.
