Michael Marmot BBC Radio 4

02nd August 2011 07:47

Michael Marmot was featured on the BBC Radio 4 programme 'From Cradle to Grave', in which Dr Ben Goldacre explores what happens when science takes the long view and reveals how these pioneering longitudinal studies are the bedrock of medicine.

Dr Goldacre talks to some of the pioneers of epidemiology including Michael Marmot whose famous study on civil servants 'changed our view of executive stress' and Professor Diana Kuh, who worked on the original 1946 cohort study. He also meets the scientists behind a new UK Birth cohort study, starting in 2012 which will track a whole new generation of children, starting from their development in the womb to their final days of life.
