During his undergraduate degree Duncan soon found out that research was what he was interested in and therefore decided to do a MSc degree in Epidemiology. During this degree Duncan did a placement at the University of Birmingham where he felt right at home doing research into the genetics of prostate cancer. After this he took up his current post as a PhD student looking into the quality of life in newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients within the BCPP project
