Dr Beth Russell is a cancer epidemiologist primarily working as part of the Guy’s and St. Thomas Hospital (GSTT) Real-World Evidence Cancer Programme. She has been part of team TOUR since 2017 and has completed her MRes and PhD in the department. Beth works closely with colleagues in Sweden using data from the Bladder Cancer Database (BladderBaSe) on numerous projects. One such project is looking at the outcomes of patients diagnosed with bladder cancer at a young age (<50) compared to their older counterparts. As part of her role within the Real-World Evidence Programme, Beth uses clinical data, mainly working together with urological colleagues on various projects.

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, Beth helped to set up the COVID-19 and cancer database working alongside clinical colleagues at GSTT. Analyses on this database have aimed to identify the risk factors associated with COVID-19 infection and mortality in cancer patients. Beth is also working with the Rapid Diagnostics Clinic (RDC) team at GSTT to help set up a clinical database, with the aim to use this data for translational research in the near future.
