Personal profile

Research interests

The Menopause Research Unit was established at Guy&rsquo;s Hospital in 1990. The main research areas have been the effect of ovarian failure on osteoporosis, endothelial function and cognition. The unit has collaborated with many other divisions due to the nature of ovarian failure and the fact that it affects so many systems. The unit has been involved in international and national multi-centre trials to investigate new hormone replacement therapies.<br /> The latest trial is investigating women with premature ovarian failure and randomising them to HRT or OCP. Main outcome measure is bone density. <br /> <br /> Having recently established Guy's and St Thomas' as an endometriosis centre with the colorectal surgeons the potential is there to commence research into women who have severe endometriosis. <br /> <br /> Being the lead for Reproductive and Sexual Health taching within King's College educational research has centred around the presence of medical students in the gynaecology clinic, chaperones, the introduction of the Gynaecology Teaching Associate Programme and more recently Breast Teaching Associates.
