Research Group: Epidemiology and Cancer Statistics Group


Working at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) in the 1970s/80s, Eve is an epidemiologist with a longstanding interest in the exploitation of routinely collected health data for research purposes. Collaborating on several large national/international cancer studies, notably the UK Childhood Cancer Study (UKCCS), she moved to the University of Oxford in 1989 and the University of Leeds in 1996.  Re-locating to the University of York in 2004, Eve’s research group worked with NHS clinicians and laboratory scientists to establish the Haematological Malignancy Research Network (HMRN); predicated on NHS infrastructures, this unique population-based patient cohort is now providing good quality “real-world” data to inform contemporary clinical practice and research – locally, nationally and internationally. She was the Director, and is now Co-Director, of the Epidemiology and Cancer Statistics Group.
