Dr Chloe Grimmett is a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Post-Doctoral Research Fellow and Senior Research Fellow for Macmillan Survivorship Research Group, Health Sciences.

Chloe’s research interests include the development of interventions to support self-management following a cancer diagnosis. She has a particular interest in the role of physical activity as a component of prehabilitation as well as during recovery from cancer treatment.

I’ve seen the physical and mental health benefits cancer survivors can experience from being physically active. I want to find the best ways to people affected by cancer to be active for the long term, aiding recovery and maximising their quality of life and wellbeing

Chloe joined the Macmillan Survivorship Research Group (MSRG) from University College London in 2012 where she now works as a Senior Research Fellow supporting the MSRG’s programme of work, dedicated to better understanding patterns of recovery after cancer diagnosis and treatment and supporting the self-management of cancer related problems.

Chloe holds an NIHR post-doctoral fellowship which aims to better understand the mechanisms that determine sustained habitual physical activity in people following a cancer diagnosis. She plans to use this to design an intervention to enable cancer survivors to be physical activity in the long term and that can be integrated into current health care and community services.

Chloe is also the lead behavioural scientist for the Wessex Fit for Cancer Surgery (WesFit) trial. This trial, funded by NHS England Transformation Funding in collaboration with the Wessex Cancer Alliance, explores the impact of physical and psychological prehabilitation prior to cancer surgery. Chloe is also a member of the National Cancer Research Institute Clinical Studies Lifestyle and Behaviour Change Sub-Group and the Cancer and Nutrition NIHR infrastructure collaborative.
