Lindsay completed her undergraduate degree at UCL and was awarded a first class honours degree in 1992: BSc Psychology. She worked at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London with Professor Lovestone on a sibling pair genetic study and a dementia project.  In 2000 she accepted a post as a research psychologist working with Professor Hodgson (Division of Medical and Molecular Genetics, King's College London) and Professor Sutton (Institute of Public Health, University of Cambridge) investigating the uptake and impact of genetic counselling for hereditary cancers, and the acceptability of one-stop screening for patients with an inherited risk of multiple cancers. She moved to the Gynaecological Cancer Research Centre in 2003 and managed the national implementation of the UK Familial Ovarian Cancer Screening Study (UK FOCSS) Phase II until screening ended in 2012. Lindsay now works on projects in Professor Menon’s research group in the Gynaecological Cancer Research Centre at UCL on studies aimed at the early detection of ovarian cancer. She is working on her PhD (part time) on the psychological predictors of patient risk management strategies for gynaecological cancers.
