Dr Jennifer Roberts is a graduate of the University of Queensland and undertook her specialty training at the Royal Brisbane and the Royal Women's Hospitals, obtaining her Fellowship of the Royal College in 1993. Since that time, she has worked in both hospital and private practice and, for the last 19 years, has specialised in gynaecological histopathology and cytopathology. Her long-term diagnostic and research interests centre on HPV-related disease of the lower anogenital tract. She is a member of the executive committee of the Australia and New Zealand Vulvovaginal Society and has a keen interest in promoting clinico-pathological dialogue to enhance appropriate use of laboratory testing in the management of vulval disease. Dr Roberts is involved in a number of NHMRC and Cancer Council-funded trials, exploring the natural history of HPV-related disease of the anus and the potential efficacy of a cytology screening program to prevent anal cancer. She is a frequent speaker at local and national meetings and, with a strong commitment to teaching, has been involved in many workshops and tutorials, both within Australia and internationally.
