    Professor Hanna is actively involved in clinical research into volatile organic compound analysis for biomarker discovery , as well as understanding the molecular drivers of volatile compounds in an attempt to develop non-invasive breath test to diagnose gastrointestinal cancer. He is the Lead for the NIHR programme for point of care diagnostics in cancer and gastrointestinal diseases. In terms of his educational research, he aims to develop competency assessment tools for training and quality assurance of surgical performance in randomised controlled trials.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
