Dr Belinda Yeo
<p><em>I am a passionate clinician who thoroughly enjoys looking after patients with breast cancer.</em>
I joined the team at ONJCRI in 2016, having spent the last 4 years in clinical and laboratory-based breast cancer research at The Royal Marsden Trust and Institute of Cancer Research in London, UK.
<p>My translational research has focused on trying to find better ways to estimate recurrence risk in patients diagnosed with oestrogen-receptor positive early breast cancer, with the ultimate aim to better personalise our therapies for those patients who have the most to gain from them. Clinicians, nurse-specialists, scientists and clinical trialists make up our collaborative team, to help to deliver the best possible care to patients with breast cancer.
