Miss Cox graduated from Imperial College School of Medicine at St Mary’s in 1998 and completed her basic surgical training in London. She then spent two years as a clinical research fellow at Imperial College London investigating the function of immune cells in lymph nodes draining breast cancer. Following on from her research, she continued her training as a general surgeon under the auspices of The London Deanery before sub-specialising in breast and oncoplastic surgery. In 2009, she was awarded the National Breast Oncoplastic Fellowship in Manchester. Prior to her current appointment, she spent six months as a locum breast and oncoplastic consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital.
As a surgical oncologist, Miss Cox continues to maintain an active research interest in the immunology of breast cancer as well as the impact of diet and exercise in breast cancer recurrence. She is also actively investigating new imaging techniques to identify lymph node involvement in breast cancer patients and regularly lectures at The Royal College of Surgeons. As a surgeon, she is trained in breast reconstruction and advanced breast conservation. She also has an interest in benign breast disease including breast pain.
