Diana Kuh elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences

Congratulations to Professor Diana Kuh, Director of the MRC dikuh1.jpgNational Survey of Health and Development and the MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing at UCL, who has been elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Diana has pioneered an interdisciplinary life course approach to chronic disease epidemiology, especially in women’s health and musculoskeletal ageing, looking at how factors in a person’s early years affect their health in later life.

This year 48 of the UK's leading medical researchers have been recognised for their exceptional contributions to the medical sciences.  Fellows are drawn primarily from biomedical science and academic medicine, but also from veterinary science, dentistry, laboratory science, medical and nursing care and other professions allied to medical science.

The Fellows will be formally admitted during a ceremony on Wednesday 1 July 2015.
