Dr Rimmer is a Consultant clinical oncologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital Cambridge and West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds. She gained her medical degree in 1996 from University of London. After completion of general medical training in London and Australia she undertook specialist training in Clinical Oncology at Addenbrooke's, Ipswich, Norfolk and Norwich and Colchester Hospitals. She was awarded a postgraduate research degree (MD) from the University of East Anglia in 2009. Her main research interest is in radiotherapy technologies to enable accurate precise treatments to be delivered to patients. Her research development of image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) in prostate cancer using gold fiducial markers facilitated this to be introduced as the standard of care within Addenbrooke's Oncology Centre.
