New Head of Centre for Population Health Sciences
Congratulations to Professor John Norrie, Chair of MRC/NIHR EME Board, and Professor Linda Bauld, who takes over as co-Head of CPHS.
John Norrie to chair MRC/NIHR EME Board
Professor John Norrie has been appointed as Chair of the MRC/NIHR Efficacy and Mechanisms Evaluation (EME) Board. This is a very prestigious appointment that will see John seconded to EME part-time for 3 years from 1 August 2019.
Change in Leadership
John will remain as Director of the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit but, as a result of this substantial national commitment, will step down from his position as co-Head of the Centre for Population Health Sciences at the end of this academic year.
We are very pleased that Professor Linda Bauld, Bruce and John Usher Chair of Public Health, has accepted the invitation to serve alongside Professor David Weller as Co-Head of the Centre for Population Health Sciences, taking up position at the beginning of the new academic year on 1 August 2019.
