Paul Pharoah
Personal Statement

I am a physician-scientist that has led a research group at the forefront of international efforts to unravel the inherited basis of susceptibility to ovarian and breast cancer, from the early candidate-gene association studies to the most recent application of next-generation sequencing. My contributions have been recognized, most notably by the international John Graunt Prize for Extraordinary Achievement in Population Sciences in 2016. I have also taken a prominent role in the translation of the research into clinical and public health practice, creating the PREDICT breast and PREDICT prostate tools for cancer prognosis that are used worldwide."
