Carol Brayne CBE


Theme Lead: Dementia, Frailty and End of Life Care theme


Professor Carol Brayne is an epidemiologist and public health physician. Her research programme includes research into dementia, healthy ageing and neuropsychiatric epidemiology. The research is multidisciplinary and the Cambridge team straddles the Department of Public health and Primary Care, and the MRC Biostatics Unit (Led by Dr Fiona Matthews). The MRC study of Cognitive Function and Ageing (CFAS) constitutes a major part of the research of this group. Ageing of the global population will be an area of policy interest for many decades as the numbers of old-old individuals increases dramatically. Carol is also Director of the Cambridge Institute of Public Health at the University of Cambridge. In 2017 Carol was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to public health medicine.
