Healthy finances

Dr Janet Cade of the Nuffield Institute has been awarded a prestigious National Public Health Career Scientist Award of £200,000 over five years, from the Department of Health.

The award, one of the first for public health professionals, will allow Dr Cade to expand her research. She is running one of the largest ever cohort studies, involving 35,000 women, looking at the relationship between diet and health, including links with cancer.

In collaboration with clinicians at St James' University Hospital, the study is also looking at the relationship between genes and diet, in relation to the condition haemochromatosis - an excess of iron in the blood.
The new funding will enable the researchers to look at factors affecting food choice, successful strategies for changing dietary habits, and new techniques to measure diet, such as analysis of supermarket receipts
