New staff

The National Cancer Registry would like to extend a warm welcome to Dr Linda Hughes who has recently been appointed to the position of tumour registration officer (TRO) based at Beaumont Hospital in Dublin. Having worked for many years as a staff nurse in both Jervis Street and Beaumont Hospitals in Dublin, Linda went onto complete a BSc in Analytical Science in Dublin City University and followed up with a PhD in Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology from University College Dublin in 2006.

Since completing her PhD, Linda has been employed by both University College Dublin and Dublin City University as a post-doctoral researcher and a part-time lecturer. Over the last seven years she has worked on various projects with these universities some of which were cancer related. She has also received a number of awards and scholarships including the Irish Cancer Society Oncology Scholars Travel Award in 2005.

Beaumont Hospital is one of the national centres of excellence in Ireland and has a large cancer service attached to it.  We wish Linda the very best of luck in her new role as tumour registration officer with the National Cancer Registry.
