Biography:

Dr. Jennifer Payne is the Associate Head - Research for the QEII Health Sciences Centre. She nurtures, encourages and facilitates research activities related to the mission, vision and goals of the Dalhousie Department of Diagnostic Radiology.

Dr. Payne is an epidemiologist who also works with the province’s breast screening program to strengthen its surveillance capacity. 

Dr. Payne's clinical work informs her research which aims to determine the performance measures that would yield the richest, most valuable information upon which to make decisions about who to screen, with which technology, and how often. These performance measures, when standardized, also enable breast screening and imaging services and programs to evaluate their performance over time, and to compare themselves against their national counterparts.
