Clinical Epidemiology

Cancer Epidemiology

This group studies the causes and outcomes of cancer and strategies for early detection.

Research includes:

  • the use of linked e-health data (primary care, secondary care (HES) and cancer registry via the CPRD) to quantify venous thromboembolism risk in cancer;
  • a large clinical trial (ukCAP) and subsequent meta-analyses of aspirin and folic acid for preventing recurrence of colorectal adenomas;
  • the use of THIN to study the epidemiology of non-melanoma skin cancer;
  • linkage of THIN with geochemical data from the British Geological Survey Unit to quantify cancer risk associated with environmental metals.

The group collaborates closely with the Respiratory Epidemiology group and the Gastrointestinal Epidemiology group.
