Professor Helen Coleman is one of the leading research scientists in QUB. Professor Coleman’s research mostly focusses on the epidemiology and early detection of gastrointestinal cancer. She has a particular interest in Barrett’s Oesophagus and oesophageal cancer. 

Professor Helen Coleman gave a presentation at our recent festive zoom meeting. 

Nutrition and Cancer survival

• What’s in a name? Nutritionists & Dietitians
• Challenges for nutrition and cancer research
• Evidence and guidelines for nutrition and cancer:
(i) Risk
(ii) During treatment
(iii) Survival after treatment

Early Diagnosis is Key #CatchItEarly

Oesophageal cancer like many other cancers does not discriminate between age or sex and knowing and recognising the signs and symptoms are crucial to early diagnosis.  If you suffer from any of the following symptoms for longer than 3 weeks you should consult your doctor.

  • Persistent Indigestion
  • Difficulty swallowing or food sticking
  • Heartburn acid reflux
  • Hiccupping that wont go away
  • Unexplained weight loss.
