Ben is a CanTest PhD Candidate in the Department of Behavioural Science and Health at University College London. His PhD studies aim to help understand how to appropriately facilitate the use of non-specialist tests in primary care, to support the diagnostic process in patients with possible symptoms of undiagnosed cancer.
Previously Ben worked at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford in the Clinical Trials Unit, where he contributed to the management of several clinical trials in primary care. During that time he worked within a multi-site clinical trial aiming to develop clinical prediction rules for possible lung and colon cancer. His interests are centred around interventions for supporting early detection of cancer and the practical implementation of evidence into routine care.
