Lucy Green is a researcher, educator and public engager in the medical science field of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) concerning the impact that the first 1000 days of our development has on chances of 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, 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. She is co-author of a new Cambridge University Press book 'What Makes a Person? Secrets of Our First 1000 Days'.

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.
