Profile

Research Description

Catherine's research programme on public health for children produces primary and secondary research with direct application to policy and policymaking. Catherine’s research interests include the wider determinants of health, a life course approach to developing health policy, obesity and physical growth, health behaviours, and inequalities in child health.

Catherine has an active interest in the use and development of research for public policy. She was the scientific secretary of the Independent Inquiry into Inequalities in Health (1997-8), commissioned by the previous UK Government to inform its health policy, co-ordinated the Department of Health’s Research and Development Strategy for Public Health (2001), and collated the evidence base for the National Service Framework for Children and Young People (2004, Department of Health). She continues to work with the Department of Health and other policymaking organisations at the interface of research and policy.

Catherine is also Chair of the Public Health Interventions Advisory Committee of NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence,http://www.nice.org.uk); Programme Director for the NIHR Public Health Research Programme (http://www.phr.ac.uk), and Co-Director of the Policy Research Unit in the the Health of Children, Young People and Families (CPRU, http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cpru/). She is also a member of the Public Health Research Consortium (PHRC,http://www.york.ac.uk/phrc/). The CPRU and PHRC are funded by the Department of Health Policy Research Programme. Catherine is an NIHR Senior Investigator.
