Nicola Meagher (BMedSci, MPH, PhD) is an early career researcher working at a national and international level to improve outcomes for patients with ovarian cancer. Nicola’s research is focussed on using large datasets to answer questions relating to ovarian cancer prevention and biomarker studies to guide better clinical management. This work is enabled through large epidemiological datasets through the OC3 (Ovarian Cancer Cohort Consortium). During her PhD, Nicola was awarded a prestigious NSW Health PhD scholarship and used data from the international Ovarian Tumor Tissue Analysis consortium, where her work contributed to diagnostic guidelines and identified prognostic markers for a rare histological subtype – mucinous ovarian cancer. Nicola has additional expertise working with linked, administrative health datasets as well as clinical cohorts for research.
Nicola’s memberships include the Australia and New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group (ANZGOG) Ovarian Tumour Working Group, and the TR-ANZGOG (Translational ANZGOG) Data Working Group.
