Research Highlights

Mr Kinross’ current research interests include:

  • The gut microbiome and colorectal cancer
  • Intelligent surgical devices- iKnife
  • Computational biology
  • Surgical nutrition
  • Surgical robotics
  • Augmented reality
  • Machine learning and digital surgery

He performs clinical trials using intra-operative mass spectrometry (known as the iKnife) for improving the precision of the surgical treatment of colorectal cancer. He also studies the role of the gut microbiome in the aetiology of colon cancer, Crohn’s disease and obesity.

He is performing clinical research at Imperial College London and at the Royal Marsden Hospital. The aim is to develop novel biomarkers for the early detection of bowel cancer, and to develop novel therapies for its treatment based on a deeper understanding of how the microbiota that reside in the gut influence tumour biology and the response of cancer to treatment.

Finally, he has a separate interest in the educational application of virtual worlds and gaming technologies for surgical and medical education. He works as part of a team that is building next generation, immersive simulators for use in major incidents and trauma training.
