Professor Jemma C. Hopewell
BSc (Hons) MSc PhD (Cantab) FESC
Professor of Precision Medicine & Epidemiology
- MSc in Global Health Science Module Lead: Genetic Epidemiology
- EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Health Data Science Module Lead: Genetics
- Visiting Professor, Department of Human Genetics, McGill University
Interests: Cardiovascular Disease, Arrhythmias, Risk Factors, Clinical Trials, Epidemiology, Genetic Epidemiology, Pharmacogenetics
Professor Jemma Hopewell leads a team of genetic epidemiologists, clinical fellows, medical statisticians and bioinformaticians in a programme of research focusing on the use of genetic and clinical trial-based studies to investigate the causes and treatments for cardiovascular disease and arrhythmias. She has particular interests in using epidemiological, genetic and other large-scale 'omic approaches to improve our understanding of drug targets and disease mechanisms, perform genomic characterisation of vascular disease and its risk factors, particularly Lp(a), and in determining predictors of patient response to therapy.
Jemma leads and collaborates on numerous trial-based, epidemiological, and genetic epidemiological projects involving CTSU's vascular mega-trials (e.g. HPS, SEARCH, THRIVE, REVEAL), large-scale studies and biobanks (e.g. PROCARDIS, UK Biobank), and international consortia (e.g.CARDIoGRAMplusC4D, ISGC GoLEAD, CATCH-ME), and working with colleagues from across academia and other industries.
She has Steering Committee, DMC and invited expert roles in numerous large-scale studies and clinical trials, as well as for national agencies and funders, ranging from the Lp(a) Scientific Advisory Board, to MHRA, to Chairing the American Heart Association Fellowship Committee (Human Studies 22-23).
