Professor Emer Guinan

Dr Guinan’s work is largely focused on the area of exercise oncology, with a particular interest on the role of exercise interventions to optimise functional performance and treatment outcome for patients undergoing or who have recently completed treatment for cancer. She is working primarily on the HRB funded Rehabilitation Strategies Following Oesophageal Cancer (ReStOre) trial which is implementing a 12-week multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme for patients who have completed treatment for oesophageal cancer. In addition, she is collaborating with a number of oncology research groups on multi-site interventions in both the oesophageal and advanced prostate cancer patients. Dr Guinan is a member of the international Transdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Partnership (ToPCaP) and a current member of the protocol development working group for the Movember Funded Global Action Plan (GAP4) project which will implement a multi-site international randomised controlled trial of exercise training in metastatic prostate cancer in the coming year. She is an active member of the ISCP and has fulfilled the role of research officer for the Chartered Physiotherapists in Oncology and Palliative Care (CPOPC) for the past three years. She has clinical experience in a variety of different roles and has contributed to both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at Trinity College Dublin. Her work has been widely published and she has presented at conferences both nationally and internationally.
