Maggie Cruickshank has a personal chair in Gynaecology at the University of Aberdeen and is an Honorary Consultant Gynaecologist at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. She is the Direcotor of Research and Development for NHS Grampian.
My clinical practice focuses on lower genital tract disease. I am past President and a trustee of the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (BSCCP) and President-elect of the European Federation of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (EFC). I currently co-chairs the Education and Training Committee of the International Federation of Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (IFCPC). I have an interest in medical education and clinical training and lead on training the trainers and assessment of colposcopy training IFCPC.
My research portfolio focuses on the management of women with lower genital tract intra-epithelial neoplasia and the impact of HPV vaccination on HPV-related disease and colposcopy performance and delivery.
Professor Maggie Cruickshank is Director of NHS Grampian Research and Development
I have a programme of research in pre-invasive disease of the lower genital tract including cervix, vagina, vulva and anus. The focus of this work relates to Human Papillomavirus infection (HPV) and cervical cancer prevention. My studies include observational studies with data linakage and clinical trials.
My main research interests include the impact of HPV immunisation on lower genital tract disease and on colposcopy performance and service delivery.
The collaborators in our research programme have set up a Scottish HPV Investigators Research Network (SHINe) to promote collaboration and the development of HPV research. This includes the development of a national HPV archive funded by CSO BTR programme grant and collaboration to optimise our research strategy with the HPV surveillance work of Health Protection Scotland. I work with collaborators from Universities of Edinburgh and Starthclyde, NHS Grampian, Lothian and Lanarkshire and Health Protection Scotland.
