Mieke Van Hemelrijck

King's College London, UK

Mieke is a Senior Lecturer in Cancer Epidemiology in the Division of Cancer Studies at King’s College London and Head of the Cancer Epidemiology Group, where she works mainly on prostate cancer.  She coordinates the Prostate Cancer Programme, which is a network bringing together all researchers and clinicians involved in prostate cancer research at King's Health Partners (KHP).

In addition, Mieke has an interest in metabolic and inflammatory biomarkers and risk of all types of cancer. Apart from facilitating tissue collection from all men diagnosed with prostate cancer at KHP, the group works closely with KHP Prostate Cancer Research Programme to serve and research the large and unique prostate cancer population of South-East London. Together they aim to improve the ongoing research on distinguishing indolent from fatal prostate cancer. In particular, Mieke is interested in how the lipid metabolism is associated with risk and progression of prostate cancer with a specific focus on serum lipid biomarkers.

In addition to her research collaborations, Mieke is the academic lead for the Master Classes in “Translational Research using Bioinformatics and Epidemiology” and “Clinical Epidemiology”. She also teaches for the Division of Cancer Studies and supervises several MRes Students and 7 PhD students
