About the Research Team This project is led by Prof Claudia Allemani, Professor of Global Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Prof Allemani’s background covers the range from applied mathematics to public health and education, via epidemiology and medical statistics. She was elected a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy in July 2012, and an Honorary Member of the UK Faculty of Public Health (FPH) in March 2014. She was awarded the Faculty’s inaugural Global Public Health Award in June 2016. Prof Allemani, co-Principal Investigator of the CONCORD programme for global surveillance of cancer survival trends, will collaborate closely with Professor Michel Coleman who initiated the CONCORD programme in 1999 and with about 600 collaborators in 70 countries world-wide, including epidemiologists, statistician, clinicians, and experts in cancer registration. She will also work alongside members for the CONCORD Central Analytic Team, including skilled researchers with backgrounds in public health, epidemiology, mathematics, statistics, cancer registration and medicine, with wide experience in international research collaborations.
