Rik Bryan has an interest in all aspects of bladder cancer, from optical technologies and surgical techniques to biomarker discovery and molecular pathways. He has a track record of research and publication in the following areas:

Biomarker discovery: Proteomic and metabolomic analyses of urine; tissue array-based immunohistochemical analyses of multiple molecular markers; next-generation sequencing of tumour tissue
Bladder tumour immunology: Basic science and responses to BCG therapy
Pathway-based research: Investigation of the potential links between cadherin switching and bladder cancer stem cells; tumour hypoxia pathways
Narrow band imaging cystoscopy: Trial-based investigation of the utility of NBI in bladder tumour resection and subsequent disease surveillance
