BiographyProf Ros Eeles is Professor of Oncogenetics at The Institute of Cancer Research. Her research interest is in cancer genetics and its application to cancer care. Her laboratory programme is in genetic predisposition to prostate cancer and she is PI of the UK's largest effort to find genetic determinants which increase prostate cancer risk (The UK Genetic Prostate Cancer Study). She is the founder of the International PRACTICAL prostate cancer genetic association consortium which validates prostate cancer germline risk variants. This is to enable refined risk prediction, targeted screening, prevention and treatment to be developed in this disease. She undertakes translational research in individuals with genetic predisposition to breast and prostate cancers. She is the genetics lead on the MARIBS study of MRI breast screening in high risk women and is PI of The IMPACT and PROFILE studies: targeted prostate cancer screening studies in men with genetic predisposition to the disease. She has been on several genetics advisory committees and edited the special edition of Familial Cancer: ‘Cancer Genetics: New Ways of Working’ which reported on models of delivery of cancer genetics services. She chose to work at The Institute of Cancer Research because it enables basic research findings to be translated into benefit for patients.
