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).


The Ride to Conquer Cancer: Featured Riders

Nigel Brockton
Nigel Brockton Speed skiing record holder Nigel Brockton may be the fastest man in Canada on skis, but his goal in the Ride to Conquer Cancer is to "settle into a comfortable rhythm and enjoy the scenery. Once asked by a sports reporter if it helps to be a bit mad, Brockton replied "Bombing straight down slopes at twice Britain's road speed limit is not for the faint hearted. Brockton has twice broken the British record in speed skiing and is the only British ski racer to have won an FIS World Cup Race, but it's clear that this Ride will be an adrenaline rush of a different kind for him. A serious cyclist, Brockton logs 6000km per year riding to and from the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary where he works as a research scientist in cancer epidemiology. He no longer travels at twice the posted speed limit, but sharing this journey so that the reasons to ride are some day eradicated, will be "the pinnacle" of his "cycling experiences." Brockton remembers that the "most arduous aspect" of his cancer treatment was "the inactivity imposed by the effects of chemotherapy. As a cancer survivor and researcher whose work is funded by events like this, he's motivated to participate in "this magnificent ride. His advice to those training for the event? "Get together with friends and go for a ride! Go exploring. For Brockton there's nothing like the freedom and the "direct connection you feel with the environment that you're cycling through."
