Childhood predictors of adult health and longevity

Professor Philip Wilson from University of Aberdeen will give a lecture on the topic of Childhood predictors of adult health and longevity

on Friday 14.11.2014 from 10.15-11 in room 1.1.18 on CSS.

Phil Wilson studied physiology at Balliol College, Oxford, followed by a Wellcome Foundation doctoral studentship in the Department of Anatomy at Oxford, where he worked on serotonin metabolism in the hypothalamus and its interaction with the neuroendocrine system. He then went to Cambridge to become a clinical medical student. Three years after qualifying, he became a partner in a small practice in Battlefield, in South East Glasgow. In 1997 this practice became one of the first five CSO-funded research practices in Scotland.

In 1995, he began to work one day per week in the then Department of General Practice at the University of Glasgow. Between 1998 and May 2001, he was medical director of WestNet, the West of Scotland Primary Care Research Network. He was appointed a primary care career scientist by the Chief Scientist Office in October 2003, with a programme of research involving the role of primary care in improving the mental health of pre-school children. He was also clinical advisor to the Medical Research Council Social and Public Health Sciences Unit in Glasgow between 2001 and 2012.

In August 2012 he was appointed University of Aberdeen Professor of Primary Care and Rural Health.

Phil's research interests are; Development and evaluation of complex interventions to improve health, Primary care paediatrics, mental health

We hope that many people will come and meet this great capacity in the field of life time health grounded in childhood.
