Dr Goon underwent undergraduate and post-graduate medical and research training in Belfast, London, Cambridge and Norwich in the UK,  and is specialist registered in Genito-urinary Medicine and Dermatology with the UK GMC. Winning a highly competitive Wellcome Trust Training Fellowship led to a PhD in the Bangham lab (Imperial College London). This subsequently led to a Cancer Research UK Clinician Scientist Fellowship for post-doctoral studies in Cambridge. He has strong research interests in virus-associated cancers, host-virus immunology, the precancerous phase, the tumour microenvironment, and has published extensively in numerous international journals. 

Dr Goon enjoys discussing research, planning experiments, and writing papers. When not working, he loves family time, learning German, music (Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann and Chopin), sports (esp. football, tennis), cooking and eating out (not necessarily in that order). 

Please contact him if you are interested in the research topics above.
