Research

Research Overview

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.  

 

 

Current Research

 

My main research interests include the impact of HPV immunisation on lower genital tract disease and on colposcopy performance and service delivery.

 

Collaborations

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.
