Overview

Tanimola is a Cancer Research UK-funded 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 sociodemographic differences in primary care diagnosis of cancer, intending to formulate appropriate interventions to address such inequalities. Presently, Tanimola is collaborating with researchers from University College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to investigate ethnic inequities in diagnosis and outcomes of symptomatic cancer.
