Dr Rebecca Beeken

UCL Health Behaviour Research Centre

Rebecca obtained a first class honours degree in Psychology and Sociology from the University of Sheffield in 2005, and went on to complete an MSc in Psychological Research Methods in 2006. Rebecca completed her PhD at the University of Sheffield in 2009, where she was awarded an ESRC 1+3 studentship to explore the variables that impact health-related quality of life in cancer patients who have undergone haematopoietic stem cell transplants.

Upon completion of her PhD, Rebecca joined the Health Behaviour Research Centre at UCL, to provide general research assistance to Professor Jane Wardle, focusing primarily on early detection of cancer. She developed an interest in Professor Wardle’s programme of work on obesity, and took on management of an NPRI-funded randomised controlled trial (RCT) of obesity in primary care (10TT Trial). She spent a year on secondment to the Medical Research Council, where she was a Research Design Service Advisor and Clinical Trials Unit Co-ordinator, alongside setting up the RCT of obesity in primary care.
