Evaluating the emotional and behavioural consequences of early cancer detection (with Denise Kendrick).
Exploring psychological predictors of engagement with treatment and treatment outcomes (current projects in prostate cancer, stroke, kidney disease and in vitro fertilisation).
Examining the effects of bio-behavioural interventions on disease and treatment outcomes (current projects in prostate cancer, diabetes and preventative vaccines)
Our research has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals. See our individual staff profiles to find out more. See a list of our recent key publications.
