About Sir. Michael Marmot

Michael Marmot is an internationally acclaimed public health specialist and a distinguished epidemiologist. Marmot heads an active epidemiology research program on social and cultural determinants of health and ill-health. His work on cardiovascular disease has led to important strategies of prevention and heath policy. His new research includes investigating social gradients in health in Japan, causes of East-West differences in coronary heart disease, and pursuing an initiative on psychological triggers of biological pathways of disease. Currently, he directs a longitudinal study of British civil servants, a study of patterns of disease among immigrants to Britain, and a study monitoring that nation’s cardiovascular health. Marmot was born in 1945 and received his Ph.D. in Epidemiology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975. He is Head of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health and Director of the International Centre for Health and Society at University College, London. He has held positions at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Texas, Houston, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Marmot has received numerous awards and honors for his contribution to public health, and was knighted in 2000 for services to epidemiology and understanding health inequalities.
