Omolara is currently working on a Population-based study of Endometrial Hyperplasia and Cancer risk in collaboration with Dr Helen Coleman, Professor Liam Murray, Dr Anna Gavin and Professor Glenn McCluggage. Her research involves establishing a population-based register of endometrial hyperplasia in Northern Ireland which will be linked to data in the Northern Ireland Cancer Registry to calculate incidence of endometrial hyperplasia, and assess its associations with endometrial cancer. Ms Sanni recently visited Vanderbilt University to conduct a pilot study on endometrial hyperplasia and cancer risk using data from Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  In addition, Ms Sanni has conducted a systematic review of risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia, and is applying pharmaco-epidemiological methods to investigate the role of medications in endometrial cancer survival. The findings from this PhD is aimed at endometrial hyperplasia patients, their family and also healthcare professionals.
