Dr Hiley specialises in all the different kinds of lung cancer and also possesses a significant amount of expertise in chemotherapy, cancer immunotherapy, radiotherapy, proton beam therapy, as well as mesothelioma, amongst many others.

Dr Hiley is also an expert in stereotactic radiotherapy (SABR) for patients with oligometastatic cancers. These are cancers that have spread to different areas (usually less than five) where SABR in combination with other cancer treatments can be used to help control the cancer. SABR can be used to treat many different cancer types e.g. lung, breast colorectal and prostate which have become oligometastatic.

He has, to-date, published a significantly high number of articles in some of the world's most prestigious journals, including The Lancet. He is the clinical lead and lung proton therapy lead of the University College London Hospital clinical oncology lung team, and is also the current deputy lead of clinical trials for the CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence.
