Simon Capewell - Public Health
Simon Capewell is Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and leads the NCD prevention and Food policy group, a research programme focussing on the epidemiology and prevention of cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke), and hence studies on tobacco and food policy (obesity, sugar, salt, transfats, fruit, etc). He enjoys facilitating multidisciplinary research teams, mentoring colleagues and writing papers (more than 350 research papers) and grant applications.
His current research focus is on developing effective and cost-saving non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention strategies regionally, nationally and internationally (majoring on healthy food and tobacco policies, and using policy analyses empirical evidence and quantitative modelling) and an active research programme provides rich opportunities for novel quantitative and qualitative approaches with a focus on policy impact and engaging with key stakeholders.
