Speaker's biography

Ms Tamzin Cuming is a Colorectal Surgeon who became interested in anal neoplasia during her training in Brighton and University College London Hospitals -  where she met patients with the disease – and as a trainee at Homerton, where there was an established anal neoplasia service already being led by Dr Mayura Nathan, the country’s leading practitioner of high resolution anoscopy (HRA). On completing her surgical training and obtaining her CCT, Ms Cuming returned to Homerton as a consultant in 2013 in order to train in HRA and ablative techniques with Dr Nathan. She eventually took over the running of the department on Dr Nathan’s retirement in 2018.  Ms Cuming is the only doctor in her family, and went to a grammar school in Kent. She studied medicine and English at Cambridge then completed her clinical studies at Guy’s and St Thomas’s Hospitals. She undertook her core surgical training in Brighton and then trained on the SE and also NE Thames surgical rotations, specialising in colorectal surgery. The moving between regions was due to some of this training being part time, which was in order to bring up her three children. She completed a Masters in Education at Imperial in 2012 and is currently pursuing a part time PhD with the University of Amsterdam in the treatment of anal neoplasia. Since 2021, Ms Cuming has been the Chair of the Women in Surgery Forum at the Royal College of Surgeons of England. She is the Homerton Principal Investigator of the Screening in the Prevention of Anal Cancer CRUK multicentre study (SEPAC) based at University College London and she is the Vice-President of the International Anal Neoplasia Society.
