Prof Jagdeep Nanchahal

Head of Clinical Advisory Board

Professor Nanchahal is a surgeon scientist at the University of Oxford, focused on defining the molecular mechanisms of common diseases such as fibrosis and translating his findings through to early phase clinical trials

His surgical background has allowed him to bring a unique insight to common, yet relatively neglected diseases

Many of his findings stem from investigations in primary human tissues, rather than relying on animal models that often fail to recreate human clinical conditions

He has pioneered the treatment of fibrosis of the hand (Dupuytren’s disease), which unlike fibrosis in major human tissues can be diagnosed early and samples easily obtained to discover new pathways of importance

In 2013 his group identified TNF⍺ as a target for Dupuytren’s disease, leading to a phase 2a clinical trial to determine the effective dose and preparation of anti-TNF
