Professor Anthony Swerdlow’s Team uses epidemiological methods to gain a better understanding of the causes of cancer.
Professor Anthony Swerdlow is investigating the causes of cancer in patients and the long-term effects of cancer treatment for these patients. He has been elected a fellow of several medical societies and is Chair of the Independent Advisory Group on Non-Ionizing Radiation at Public Health England.
I joined the team back in September 2018 after completing my Masters in Medical Statistics from University of Leicester. Most of my work is on a case control study of nearly 2,000 cases of breast cancer in men. My work involves analysing data and looking for lifestyle risk factors for male breast cancer.
Dr Minouk Schoemaker is a staff scientist funded by the charity Breast Cancer Now to conduct research into the causes of breast cancer.
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.
