MBChB MSc DPhil FFPH
Senior Clinical Research Fellow
Ben Lacey is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at UK Biobank, based at the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU), University of Oxford. His main interests are in the measurement of population health, and in the use of large-scale prospective studies to understand the effects of adiposity and other metabolic factors on disease risk. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and undertook specialist training in public health in Oxford, during which time he received an MSc in Global Health Science and a DPhil in Epidemiology. He was made a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health in 2012.
