Dr Claudia Allemani is Professor of Global Public Health in the Cancer Survival Group at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Claudia’s background covers a range of skills from applied mathematics to public health and education, via epidemiology and medical statistics. She graduated in Mathematics from the University of Turin, then completed a Masters in Statistical and Informatic Methods for data analysis in the University of Milan, followed by a specialisation [PhD equivalent] in Medical Statistics, and a PhD in Public Health and Education, both from the University of Pavia. She has 20 years’ experience in international comparisons of cancer survival, “high-resolution” studies and the estimation of avoidable premature deaths, with a focus on their impact on cancer policy. She leads the data management, quality control and survival analyses for the global surveillance of cancer survival (CONCORD), for which she is co-Principal Investigator. In 2017, she obtained European Research Council Consolidator grant to carry out a world-wide study on inequalities in patterns of care and survival from cancers of the breast, cervix and ovary (VENUSCANCER). She collaborates with several international organisations such as the Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the World Health Organisation (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Cancer Society (ACS).
Claudia dedicated her career to monitor and denounce disparities in access to cancer care in Europe and world-wide because she believes that the first step to solve a problem, however big, is to measure its extent. Real-world data are crucial to quantify and monitor the effectiveness of health systems in managing cancer. Analyses of patterns of care and population-based survival trends are essential to plan future strategies for cancer control.
