Helen Rippon, PhD, Chief Executive

Dr Rippon was appointed CEO of Worldwide Cancer Research in January 2016 after four years as Director of Research, responsible for the strategic delivery of the charity’s multi-million pound, global programme of pioneering research.

Awarded a PhD in 2002 for research into prostate cancer, Dr Rippon started her career as a postdoctoral fellow at Imperial College London working in the new and blossoming field of tissue engineering.  There she authored some of the earliest scientific papers on the potential of embryonic stem cells for lung regeneration.

Moving to the third sector in 2008, Dr Rippon oversaw the medical research programmes of Age UK and Prostate Cancer UK, developing in-depth knowledge of research funding strategy and policy, the evaluation of research impact, science communication and public engagement.
As CEO of Worldwide Cancer Research, she leads a charity that may be small in staff numbers but punches well above its size in the fight against cancer.  Over four decades Worldwide Cancer Research has invested nearly £200 million into research across 34 countries that has led to demonstrable improvements in the lives of people with cancer today.
Dr Rippon has written for the Huffington Post and The Scotsman, and can be found tweeting science, running and vegetable growing @DrHelenRippon.
