Mark Clemons

Professor of Medicine, University of Ottawa
Division of Medical Oncology

Dr Mark Clemons graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK (B.Med.Sci; MB BS). He completed his post-doctoral training in internal medicine and medical oncology at the Hammersmith Hospital, London; Christie Hospital, Manchester (MSc, Oncology; MD, Oncology) and at the Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto. He is currently a Clinical Investigator at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (Cancer Therapeutics Program), staff medical oncologist (Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre) and Professor (University of Ottawa). A proponent of high quality clinical trials research, he is involved in a large number of experimental therapeutic studies for patients with early stage, locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer. He is the recipient of multiple peer-reviewed research grants and is widely published in the field of breast cancer management. He is internationally recognised for his work on using tumour and serum biomarkers to improve the management of patients with locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer. His work on strategies to improve tissue acquisition during systemic therapy have also improved the assessment of both the efficacy of novel therapeutic agents but also innovative ways of administering established agents. His research vision is to focus specifically on moving biomarker studies into the clinic to provide individualized patient-tailored care.
