Tristan Barrett graduated from St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London in 2002. After completing his Royal college of Physicians examinations, he worked as a Visiting Fellow at National Institutes for Health, USA in the Molecular Imaging Program from 2005 to 2007, under the tutelage of Dr Peter Choyke. Research projects at NIH included prostate cancer MRI, angiogenesis imaging, and the bench-side development of targeted contrast agents.
He trained in radiology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, and developed an interest in education, becoming a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and co-authoring books for medical students and residents. On completion of radiology residency, he undertook a fellowship in body imaging at the University of Toronto, Canada, collaborating with Masoom Haider in prostate imaging projects.
He is currently a University Lecturer in the Department of Radiology at the University of Cambridge and an Honorary NHS Consultant Radiologist.
His main clinical research interest is in prostate cancer, with a particular interest in multi-parametric MRI techniques for identifying and characterising prostate tumours.
