Biography and Interests

Lynne is a Clinical Research Fellow at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit (SPHSU) at Glasgow University.  She has a particular interest in early years and the way in which interventions applied in early life can be used to reduce health inequalities.

She studied Medicine at the University of Glasgow and during her undergraduate career completed a BSc(MedSci) in Developmental Medicine, graduating with First Class Honours.  After gaining her MBChB in 2003 she trained as a General Practitioner, gaining entry to the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2007.  Following this, she spent time working in Sexual and Reproductive Health at the Sandyford Initiative, Glasgow before beginning specialist training in Public Health in 2010.

Her MPH thesis, completed in 2012, involved collaboration with colleagues at Health Scotland and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health and contributed to the growing body of work that explores mortality patterns in the west of Scotland.
