Department Of Women’s Cancer Ucl, The Department of Women’s Cancer, headed by Prof Martin Widschwendter, has an exceptionally talented group of academics and clinicians dedicated to the Department’s mission which is to conduct multidisciplinary research into women specific cancers, to create clinical interventions and to extend disease knowledge so that fewer women receive a cancer diagnosis and treatment and quality of life are improved for those who do.

In order to achieve this, we are not only a tertiary referral centre for gynaecological cancers treating between 400 and 500 women with primary gynaecological cancers but we also have developed an integrated research pathway including all women specific cancers for risk stratification, prevention, early detection and diagnosis, which incorporates clinical, epidemiological, genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, symptom and imaging data, and applies them to populations
