MRC PHRU Medical Statistician; DPhil Student
Ruth Boxall is a Medical Statistician working on the China Kadoorie Biobank Study at the Clinical Trial Service Unit, Nuffield Department of Population Health, Oxford. After completing a BSc in Biological Sciences with Genetics in 2009 at the University of Edinburgh, she did an MSc by Research in 2010, rotating through the three centres at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine in Edinburgh: MRC Human Genetics Unit, Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre and the Centre for Genomic and Experimental Medicine. Ruth remained at the IGMM for a further four years conducting bioinformatics based research into genetic networks and pathways in cognition and neuropsychiatric disorders. As part of the statistical team at the CKB she will be investigating genetic variants as possible causal risk factors in a number of diseases.
