Dr Fabio Girardi
Research Degree Student
I am a practising medical oncologist from Italy. After obtaining my qualifications at the University of Padua (2005 and 2010), I worked as a consultant for several years in my home country, with a special interest in the management of brain tumours. During 2015-2016 I studied for an MPhil in Epidemiology at the University of Cambridge. I continue to be clinically active at the Macmillan Cancer Centre, University College Hospital.
I joined the Cancer Survival Group at LSHTM as a PhD candidate in 2017, supervised by Claudia Allemani and Michel Coleman. Using data from the CONCORD-3 study, my project aims to estimate and describe worldwide trends in survival from brain tumours by morphology, topography, and age.
I am funded by the Jane Davidson and Paul O’Gorman Doctoral Scholarship.
