Kezia Gaitskell joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in 2013, and is studying for a DPhil as part of the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre’s Clinical Research Fellowship programme. Prior to coming to the Unit, she studied medicine at Oxford, trained as a histopathology registrar in London, and completed an MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Her main research interest is in ovarian cancer, and particularly the interface between histopathology and epidemiology. For her DPhil, she is exploring epidemiological risk factors for ovarian cancer in the Million Women Study cohort, and how this varies by histological subtype. She also teaches on the MSc in Global Health Science programme of the Nuffield Department of Population Health.
