Krys Baker is a Research Co-ordinator who originally joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in 1984, and has been involved in data management and co-ordination of many epidemiological studies within the unit, including studies on testicular cancer, childhood cancer, effects of electromagnetic fields, and cervical cancer. Following a four-year spell working as Senior Trial Co-ordinator in the Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit, Krys returned to CEU in 2014 as Research Co-ordinator of the unit.
