Tim Peters

Professor Peters is a statistician by background, with an interest and track record in risk assessment that commenced with his PhD in the field of perinatal and paediatric epidemiology undertaken at the University of Exeter about 20 years ago. His interests evolved into primary care research in general, and randomised trials in particular (including issues of cancer treatment and screening) during a series of academic posts first at Cardiff and, since 1992, at the University of Bristol. He is a member of the NCRI Palliative Care Clinical Studies Development Group, and is Director of the NCRI-accredited Bristol Randomised Trials Collaboration. He has extensive experience on regional and national grants committees, including the NHS Health Technology Assessment Commissioning Board and the MRC Health Services and Public Health Research Board. He is a member of the Primary Care and Other Community Based Subjects panel for the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, is a co-editor of the journal Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology and is on the Editorial Board of the British Journal of General Practice.

Professor Peters has ongoing interest in communicating statistical methods and the results of complex research designs and data analyses to a general clinical audience. He is an author of over 200 peer-reviewed publications, on two occasions winning the RCGP/Boots the Chemists Research Paper of the Year Award. He has co-edited the book ‘Screening in Obstetrics and Gynecology’, which has recently been extensively revised in a second edition.
