Senior Epidemiologist; University Research Lecturer
- Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit
Iona Millwood completed an undergraduate degree in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge and a DPhil in Molecular Genetics at the University of Oxford. She worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Imperial College London, on large-scale genetic epidemiological projects including the Northern Finland Birth Cohorts, and also spent several years as a Lecturer at the University of New South Wales, Australia, developing and conducting clinical trials for biomedical methods of HIV prevention in Australia and South-East Asia.
She joined the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU) in 2009, to work on the China Kadoorie Biobank (CKB) prospective cohort study. Current research interests focus on the genetic and molecular epidemiology of cardiometabolic diseases, and the health effects of alcohol consumption.
