Professor Wishart has a national and international reputation in the field of breast cancer and has published widely in the field of breast surgery, endocrine surgery and breast cancer. He was instrumental in raising £2 million pounds to build the Cambridge Breast Cancer Research Unit in 2008, a clinical and laboratory facility to support the clinical research programme. He is the lead or co-investigator on clinical trials that have attracted over £2 million pounds in grant funding.

He recently led a team of Cambridge-based researchers to develop a computer model PREDICT that estimates survival and treatment benefits after surgery for invasive breast cancer (www.predict.nhs.uk). Predict is now the most commonly used predictive model by UK breast surgeons, with over 12,000 hits a month on the website, and half of these from international visitors.
