Associate Professor Andrew Strickland is a medical oncologist and clinical researcher specialising in gastrointestinal cancer. His practice is in the areas of bowel, pancreas, stomach and oesophageal cancers as well as some other less common GI tumours.
Andrew was born in Melbourne and obtained his medical degree at Melbourne University. He completed his training in medical oncology with the Royal Australian College of Physicians. He then undertook a fellowship at Guy’s Hospital in London where he worked in the area of upper gastrointestinal cancer.
He has broad experience managing patients with a wide range of tumours but Andrew’s sole focus now is GI cancer. He was instrumental in establishing the gastrointestinal cancer clinics at Monash and in collaboration with his surgical and radiation oncology colleagues began the GI cancer multidisciplinary team meetings there. More recently he has organised a multidisciplinary team meeting for neuroendocrine tumours.
He is the principal investigator on a large number of clinical trials in gastrointestinal cancer at Monash and enrols significant numbers of patients onto these trials. He plays a major role in the co-ordination of these studies and regularly attends investigator meetings to discuss current and prospective clinical trials.
Associate Professor Strickland is an active member of the Australian Gastrointestinal Trials Group (AGITG), the Medical Oncology Group of Australia (MOGA) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). He has published over 70 peer reviewed articles and reviews and has acted as a reviewer for a number of journals.
When not working his favourite things are spending time with his wife and two sons along with indulging his passion for photography.
