Dr Anna T Gavin


My research profile focuses on patient reported outcomes and cancer epidemiology reflecting study areas made possible by the unique datasets in the N. Ireland Cancer Registry on process of care and premalignant conditions (Barrett's Oesophagus, Prostate Specific Antigen, and Colorectal Polyps) and links to screening programs.

Recent grant to establish a population based stroke registry and application to establish a heart disease registry promises new research in data linkage of stroke, heart disease and cancer.
