Abstract

Hazel is deputy director of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology unit and
professor of statistical epidemiology at the University of Southampton.

Since 1998, she has run the Southampton Women’s Survey (SWS). This is an unusual cohort study in which women were recruited when not pregnant, those who subsequently became pregnant were followed through their pregnancy, and the children are being followed up; the 17-19 year follow-up is currently being piloted. The SWS has provided information leading her to work with others on a range of interventions before and during pregnancy to improve children’s health and development.

Prior to working in Southampton, Hazel was at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine from 1979-1986 and then at the MRC Laboratories in The Gambia from 1986-1991. Throughout her career, she has worked mainly on large cohort and intervention studies.
