Dr. Nigel Brockton

Dr. Nigel Brockton joined the AHS Department of Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention Research as a Research Scientist (Molecular Epidemiologist) in May 2007, and is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Oncology, University of Calgary. Dr. Brockton graduated with a BSc. (Hons.) in Applied Marine Biology from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1994. He went on to receive a PhD in Genetic Epidemiology from the Department of Medicine and Therapeutics, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland in 2003, and completed post-doctoral training in the Division of Maternal and Child Health Sciences at the University of Dundee, Dundee, Scotland.
His research is focused on how inflammation and micronutrient can affect the progression and spread of cancer. He also focuses on building population-based prospective cohorts of cancer patients in order to identify ways to minimize the risk of the spread and progression of cancer and create resources for multidisciplinary research.
Dr. Brockton's current major research projects are: 2009 - present: Breast cancer To Bone (B2B) Metastases Research Program, with funding from the Alberta Cancer Research Institute 2010 - present: Colorectal cancer Lifestyle and Environment in Alberta Research (CLEAR) study (The Role of Vitamin D and Inflammation in Colorectal Cancer Metastases), with funding from the Alberta Cancer Foundation 2008 -present: Ohlson Research Initiative in Head & Neck Cancer, Prognostic and predictive biomarkers. At 18 years of age, Dr. Brockton was diagnosed with a Ewing's Sarcoma and underwent surgery and 13 months of chemotherapy. This was followed by a recurrence three years later, in 1992, resulting in surgery, intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Dr. Brockton finished treatment in March of 1993.
Dr. Brockton was a member of the British Speed Skiing Team (1994 - 2007 & 2011 - 2013), F.I.S. World #3 (2003 - 2004), with a personal best speed of 241.45kph (150.10mph) set in Les Arcs France, 2005. He is a keen cyclist and founded the One Aim Team, the second largest team in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2011, 2012 & 2013; they have raised almost $1Million in the last 4 years. He is married, and has two beautiful children: Josh (9) and Ella (6).

Brockton - who now ... [cached]

Brockton - who now specializes in cancer research - isn't afraid to talk about his battle with cancer, nor is Mary Beth Eckersley, who underwent a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery in mid-August.

Dr. Brockton the first Albertan to complete Everesting challenge to raise money for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer Picture "As if riding more than 200 kilometres over two days in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer were not enough, one team decided to up the ante just two weekends before this year's event. ​ The plan was simple: to climb the hill near Dr. Nigel Brockton's Calgary community, Tuscany, on a bike enough times to equal the distance of climbing Mt. Everest. Inspired by a group of Australians that had completed the same "Everesting" feat - to date some 660 worldwide people have completed the challenge - Brockton, with the support of his One Aim team, became the first person in Alberta." the full article here.
​Physician-led cyclists help raise millions in Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer Picture "The team of 110 riders - led by founder, cyclist and cancer survivor 44-year-old Dr. Nigel Brockton, a research Scientist with CancerControl Alberta, AHS - has raised a cancer-busting $1.75 million since the team's 2010 creation. Brockton has had two brushes with cancer. At the age of 18, after his second diagnosis with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of bone tumor, he decided to be a cancer researcher. "I really shouldn't be alive, but here I am 26 years later - and doing my part to support others diagnosed with cancer," says Brockton. "I ride with an amazing group of people with so many great stories to tell." It's those stories that fuel Brockton's research and compassion for helping people with the disease. "My research focuses on why people get cancer and who is at the greatest risk of their cancer spreading," says Brockton." the full article here.
