Our Aetiological Epidemiology Team uses epidemiological methods to gain a better understanding of the causes of cancer.
Professor Richard Houlston is Head of the Division of Genetics and Epidemiology. His research focuses on the identification and characterisation of genetic susceptibility to cancer.
Dr Michael Jones is a senior staff scientist in the Division of Genetics and Epidemiology, where he is working on the Breast Cancer Now Generations Study. His main research interests are in the design and analysis of complex large epidemiological studies.
As a medical statistician, I conduct analyses using data from the Generations Study and international collaborations to discover links between lifestyle factors and breast cancer risk, disseminating results and writing scientific papers.
