Ms Clare Gilham
I graduated from the University of Reading in 1996 with a BSc in Applied Statistics and then in 1997 from the University of Leicester with an MSc in Medical Statistics. I have been in my current role since 1999 (Institute of Cancer Research 1999-2004 and LSHTM 2004-date).
I am one of the co-organisers of the Advanced Course in Epidemiological Analysis short course. I also teach sessions for STEPH and SME and supervise distance learning summer projects.
My primary research interest concerns HPV and cervical cancer. I am updating two cohort studies concerning the natural history of human papillomavirus (HPV) in relation to cervical screening which recruited in Manchester: the ARTISTIC trial (a randomised trial of HPV testing in primary cervical screening) and the Manchester Cohort Study. My other research area involves mesothelioma and lung cancer associated with asbestos exposure: MALCS is a large case-control study of mesothelioma in relation to lifetime occupational and other asbestos exposures and TIPS investigate future mesothelioma rates from asbestos lung fibre burden and exposure in the young general population.
