Mr Blake-James is a consultant urologist at York Teaching Hospital.

Roger was awarded his PhD in 2004 from the University of York (UK), where he investigated the metabolic activity of porcine embryos in vitro with Professor Henry Leese. During this time, he worked with Sygen International, Berkeley, Ca, with Dr Lali Abeydera. He then undertook a fresh challenge, studying the origin of DNA damage in oesophageal cancer and its pre-cancerous lesion, Barrett’s Oesophagus, in the lab of Dr Laura Hardie at the University of Leeds (UK).


He combined the methods from this period of doctoral training with his prime interest of reproductive physiology to discover links between metabolic activity and DNA damage in the preimplantation embryo, during a second post-doctoral position at the University of York. On the strength of this, he was awarded a Wellcome Trust VIP fellowship, and funding from the Medical Research Council, which lead to his current position. He joined HYMS in Jan 2010 as a Lecturer of Reproductive Medicine.
