External roles and responsibilities
Lucy Green researches and teaches undergraduate science and medical students about early development effects on lifelong health. She works with national and international learned societies to advocate for the physiological sciences, with a specific interest in counteracting the effects of a poor developmental start on non-communicable disease by raising awareness of the first 1000 days of our lives with the public (especially parents-to-be), health professionals and policy makers. She actively promotes a public understanding of science by innovating engagement tools for science festivals, and devising health-science experiences for young people which enable them to question experts about big health issues. As Head of Engagement in the Faculty of Medicine she works to support and recognise public engagement and involvement skills, and to foster connections with diverse communities of publics about medical research and education.
