Lesley has been working as a data manager in the CCGE for a number of years after previously holding a similar position at the World Conservation Monitoring Centre in Cambridge. Initially working for Douglas Easton and subsequently for Antonis Antoniou, Lesley’s work has focused on data management for the Breast Cancer Linkage Consortium and in recent years the CIMBA Consortium for which she currently manages the primary database.
