Kezia Gaitskell

BM BCh MA (Oxon) MSc DPhil FRCPath

Consultant Pathologist and Honorary Visiting Research Fellow

Dr Kezia Gaitskell joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in 2013, and studied for a DPhil as part of the Cancer Research UK Oxford Centre’s Clinical Research Training Fellowship programme. Prior to coming to the Unit, she studied medicine at Oxford, trained as a histopathology registrar in London, and completed an MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In 2018 she took up a post as an NIHR-funded Academic Clinical Lecturer in Histopathology in the Nuffield Division of Clinical Laboratory Sciences.

Her main research interest is in the interface between histopathology and epidemiology. For her DPhil, she explored epidemiological risk factors for ovarian cancer in the Million Women Study cohort, and how this varies by histological subtype. For her postdoctoral research, she continues to investigate variation in risk factors for different histological types of cancer.

Since completing her clinical training in 2022, she has continued with research and teaching alongside working as a Locum Consultant in Histopathology at Oxford University Hospitals.
