Tanimola is a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Exeter Medical School who has been part of the DISCO group (Diagnosis of Symptomatic Cancer Optimally) since 2011.  He has a background in Medical Rehabilitation and Public Health. His workstream aims to identify and quantify areas in the diagnosis of cancer where ethnic inequality exists, with the intention of formulating appropriate interventions to address such inequalities. Presently, Tanimola is working in collaboration with researchers from Cambridge University to examine ethnic differences in health care use in men with symptoms suggestive of prostate cancer.
