Dr Diep Nguyen is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Cervical cancer and HPV Group. Her research currently focusses on modelling the impact of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening. She has recently been involved in modelled evaluations of HPV vaccination and cervical screening for Vietnam, Papua New Guinea as well as for the World Health Organisation (WHO). She previously has been involved across different research areas, including a clinical trial to evaluate immunogenicity and reactogenicity of alternative schedules of HPV vaccine, willingness to pay for HPV vaccine, and costing studies of HPV vaccination, cervical screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cervical cancer in Vietnam.
