Professor Trisha Greenhalgh

Trish is a general practitioner and academic who trained at Cambridge and Oxford Universities and worked at University College London and Queen Mary University of London before returning to Oxford in 2015. She leads a programme of research at the interface between the social sciences and medicine. Her work seeks to celebrate and retain the traditional and the humanistic aspects of medicine and healthcare while also embracing the unparalleled opportunities of contemporary science and technology to improve health outcomes and relieve suffering. Three particular interests are the health needs and illness narratives of minority and disadvantaged groups; the introduction of technology-based innovations in healthcare; and the complex links (philosophical and empirical) between research, policy and practice.  She is the author of 250 peer-reviewed publications and 8 textbooks.  She was awarded the OBE for Services to Medicine by Her Majesty the Queen in 2001 and made a fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2014.
