Trudie Lang

Professor of Global Health Research

  • Head of The Global Health Network, @Oxford

The Global Health Network

My career has focused on combating diseases of poverty through the generation of high quality evidence. I have worked in Industry, academia and UN organisations. With my team and our partners we work to drive better health outcomes in vulnerable communities by enabling local leadership and ground-up implementation of high quality health research studies.

Within the University of Oxford, I devised and lead The Global Health Network which is a major international collaborative enterprise that sets out to improve health by improving research. We achieve this by finding better processes, building local capacity, supporting careers and enabling research in situations and diseases where live-saving data is woefully lacking.
