Prof Sarah Blagden

I am a Cancer Specialist dedicated to researching and treating women with Gynaecological Cancers. I have worked in this field for over 25 years, having completed specialist training at the Royal Marsden Hospital, in London and the Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge and subsequently working as a consultant at Imperial College London (2006-2015) and Oxford University Hospitals (2015 onwards).

I qualified as a doctor in 1994 from Charing Cross & Westminster Medical School in London with an intercalated BSc in pharmacology and later did a PhD in genetics (University of Cambridge). I am a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and a member of both the British Gynaecological Cancer Society and the NCRI Gynaecological Cancer Network.

The focus of my laboratory research is on the biology of cancer development, particularly amongst women carrying BRCA or other pre-disposing gene mutations. I lead an Oxford Unit specialising in cancer prevention trials and believe that excellent quality of life is a vital (and often overlooked) component of care during and after cancer treatment. This is an emphasis of my practice.
