Place of primary qualification: University of London

Professor Gareth Evans is a consultant geneticist based at Manchester University NHS Trust. He also sees patients privately at The Christie Private Care. Professor Evans has gained a national and international reputation for his work in the clinical and research aspects of cancer genetics, particularly in neurofibromatosis and breast cancer.

Since his appointment, Professor Evans has developed a highly regarded clinical service for cancer genetics in the North West of England. He is a key opinion leader on hereditary breast cancer and cancer syndromes, frequently lecturing both in the UK and abroad.

Professor Evans has also established a national training programme for clinicians, nurses, and genetic counsellors in breast cancer genetics. He has set up a comprehensive system for risk assessment and counselling for breast cancer.

With an impressive portfolio of research, Professor Evans has published approximately 980 peer-reviewed research publications, with 350 as first or senior author and over 220 focused on neurofibromatosis. He led a successful bid for a nationally funded NF2 service, securing £7.5 million per year, which commenced in 2010.
