Dr Naomi Brewer PhD, MMedSci, BSc(Hons)

Research Officer

Centre for Public Health Research

My research to date has mainly focussed on cervical cancer in NZ. My PhD involved a series of studies of the stage at diagnosis and subsequent survival of women with cervical cancer in NZ. The research developed from work that I undertook on the Independent Monitoring of the National Cervical Screening Programme. I am a named investigator on a pilot study investigating the acceptability of HPV self-sampling for cervical screening in the Wellington area, and a named investigator on a national HRC funded RCT of the acceptability of HPV self-sampling. I was co-Principal Investigator of an HPV prevalence survey in Fiji, which was undertaken in collaboration with the Fiji Ministry of Health and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. I was an investigator on a motor neurone disease case-control study, as well as a cross-sectional study examining pesticide exposure and neuropsychological effects in children. I have previously undertaken work investigating the associations between glycosylated haemoglobin concentrations and the risk of developing cancer, and mortality.

My research has mainly focussed on studies of cervical cancer in NZ. I am currently undertaking an RCT of the acceptability of HPV self-sampling for cervical screening in NZ. I have previously been involved in studies examining: the stage at diagnosis and subsequent survival of women with cervical cancer in NZ; HPV prevalence in Fiji; risk factors for motor neurone disease; and pesticide exposure and neuropsychological effects in children. I have also previously investigated the associations between glycosylated haemoglobin concentrations and the risk of developing cancer, and mortality.
