- Research Associate
Ingrid trained in medicine at the University of Bristol and went on to specialty training in Clinical Genetics at Great Ormond Street, London. She undertook a PhD at the Section of Genetics and Epidemiology at the Institute of Cancer Research, London, identifying and characterising genes that confer susceptibility to childhood tumours. Ingrid began specialty training in Public Health Medicine in 2011 in order to pursue her academic interest in the implementation and integration of genomic medicine across the national healthcare setting. Her time is divided between the Health Economics Research Centre and Ethox, in the Nuffield Department of Population Health. During her time at Ethox Ingrid will be exploring the themes of resource allocation/priority setting and the role of family (history) applied to the integration of genomic medicine across the national healthcare service.
Ingrid is on the Programme Committee of the Mainstreaming Cancer Genetics Programme; a Wellcome Trust funded initiative that aims to make genetic testing part of routine cancer patient care. She is also the Director of the Centre for Personalised Medicine, an innovative partnership between St Anne’s College and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, University of Oxford, which aims to provide a focus for multidisciplinary interaction, dissemination of knowledge and enhancement of the educational experience of students, faculty, healthcare professionals and the public more broadly.
