Julia Geppert

Job Title
Research Fellow
WMS - Health Sciences
Research Interests

My particular interests are the evaluation of screening tests and programmes. As a systematic reviewer, I contribute to evidence reviews for the UK National Screening Committee, Cochrane and NICE. At the moment, I am working on the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) commissioned project 'Surrogates for Mortality in Cancer Screening Trials (SUMS)'.


I studied "Nutritional Science and Home Economics" at the University of Bonn (Germany) from 1996 and received my master's degree (Dipl. oec. troph.) in 2002. I then worked as research assistant in the field of health & nutrition research at the Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital, Ludwig-Maximilian-University (LMU) of Munich (Germany) and wrote my dissertation about the "Evaluation of two supplementation strategies to improve long-chain n-3 fatty acid status in healthy adults". I received a doctor's degree in "Human Biology" in 2007. From 2007 to 2009, I worked as research assistant at the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition (IBCHN) in London (UK). These posts awakened my interest in evidence-based healthcare and medical statistics and led to my decision to study the postgraduate taught course "Evidence based healthcare (EBH) & health technology assessment (HTA)" at the University of Birmingham (UK). In June 2010, I was awarded a postgraduate certificate in "EBH & HTA". From 2010 to 2014, I had a career break to raise a family. Since September 2014, I am working with Prof. Sian Taylor-Phillips at the Warwick Medical School (Team 'Warwick Screening').
