Professor Anna Campbell MBE

Anna Campbell is Professor in Clinical Exercise Science at Edinburgh Napier UniversityFor the past 22 years she has worked in the field of exercise oncology and has been instrumental in the implementation of evidence-based exercise programmes for people affected by cancer across UK.

She has published over 60 peer reviewed research papers and three educational book chapters on the subject of cancer and exercise.

As key advisor to Macmillan Cancer Care, she worked on the development of the UK wide community based MoveMore programmes.

Professor Campbell is Director of CanRehab which she set up in 2007 due to the lack of training of health and fitness instructors on how to provide safe, effective and individual exercise programmes. She is also chair of the charity CanRehab Trust which matches people affected by cancer with cancer exercise qualified instructors and provides remote and face to face exercise programmes.

Anna is part of a small international working group of exercise experts “Moving Through Cancer” responsible for updating the evidence-based exercise prescription guidelines for the provision of clinical and community-based exercise programmes for cancer patients and survivors. Finally, Professor Campbell is part of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Cancer Rehabilitation 2030 working group.
