Martin's primary research interests is in: the role of PSMA PET/CT in high-risk prostate cancer, local cytoreductive therapy and metastasis-directed therapies for men with newly-diagnosed metastatic prostate cancer. He has a further interest in understanding how men make treatment decisions in prostate cancer, including the use of discrete choice experiments. 

Martin has received grant funding from the Wellcome Trust and University College London Hospitals (UCLH) Charity. He is also the national research fellow for the RCT IP2-ATLANTA and the co-PI for the multicentre study IP5-MATTER with Professor Hashim U. Ahmed.
