Biography and Interests

Professor Moore is Director of the MRC / CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow. Prior to taking up this position in October 2013, he was founding Director of DECIPHer, a UKCRC Public Health Research Centre of Excellence. DECIPHer is a strategic partnership between Cardiff, Bristol and Swansea Universities, in each of which he previously held teaching and/or research positions in human geography, health services research, medical statistics and public health improvement. He is a social scientist and statistician with a particular interest in the development and evaluation of complex interventions to improve public health, underpinned by frameworks such as the socio-ecological model of health and an awareness of the complex interdependencies between individual, social, environmental and economic determinants of health. Working in multidisciplinary teams and in collaboration with policy makers, practitioners and the public, he has completed mixed methods evaluations of diverse interventions and programmes, which have then had a direct impact on policy and practice. These include randomised trials of the strengthening families programme, national exercise referral scheme, fruit tuck shops, peer-led smoking prevention (the ASSIST trial), the free school breakfast initiative in Wales and smoking cessation in pregnancy. He is keen to champion rigorous multidisciplinary research that can have an impact on public health policy, to improve health and reduce health inequalities.

He is currently a member of the MRC/NIHR Methodology Research Programme Panel and the MRC Population Health Strategy Group. He is a member of the peer review colleges of the Wellcome Trust, ESRC and MRC and of the Cross-Whitehall Trials Advice Panel. Laurence was previously a member of the OSCHR Public Health Board, the NPRI Scientific Committee, and the NIHR Public Health Research Programme Research Funding Board. He is external examiner at the University of Oxford Department of Social Policy and Intervention and has an adjunct Professorship at the University of Bergen Graduate School of Human Growth and Interaction. He holds honorary positions at the University of Bristol School of Social and Community Medicine and Cardiff University School of Social Sciences.
