Dr Chiara DiGirolamo
I obtained my degree in Medicine and Surgery in 2008 and my specialisation in Public Health in 2014 from the University of Bologna (Italy).
During my specialty training programme my research focussed on neglected tropical diseases among immigrant populations in Italy and on socio-economic inequalities in mortality and access to health care in an Italian census cohort.
I completed a Master in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in 2015.
As Research Fellow at the Cancer Policy Programme (Cancer Survival Group) I am currently focusing on geographic variation in stage at diagnosis between Clinical Commissioning Groups in England and on the role of stage and treatment in international differences in colorectal cancer survival.
