    Professor Gareth Evans is a Consultant Geneticist, based at Manchester University NHS Trust and he also sees patients privately at The Christie Private Care. He has gained a national and international reputation for his work in the clinical and research aspects of cancer genetics, particularly in neurofibromatosis and breast cancer. He has developed a clinical service for cancer genetics in the North West of England, which is nationally held in high regard and he is an important opinion leader on hereditary breast cancer and cancer syndromes, lecturing both in the UK and abroad.

    He has also developed a national training programme for clinicians, nurses and genetic counsellors in breast cancer genetics and established a system for risk assessment and counselling for breast cancer. Further, Professor Evans has published some 810 peer-reviewed research publications, with  293 as first or senior author and over 180 on neurofibromatosis. He has also led a successful bid for a nationally funded NF2 service - £7.5 million per year - that started in 2010.
