Dr Alejandra Castanon's research focuses on the evaluation of screening programmes, in particular cervical screening.
In close collaboration with the NHS Cervical Screening programme she runs a case control study to evaluate the cervical screening programme in England and Wales. This research provides policy makers evidence on which to base policy decisions.
Additional research interests include risk of preterm birth following treatment for cervical disease and the expansion of the evaluation work to colorectal and breast screening.
