Head of Clinical Trials Kemri-Wellcome Programme (2006-08)
Trudie Lang is a Professor of Global Health and Director of The Global Health Network at the University of Oxford. Her role has seen her build a global network of technical and research staff, using the latest innovations in digital technology and data management to share skills, best practice and real time data to drive improvement in global heath.
Having spent over 10 years in industry – at Syntex Pharmaceuticals (1992-94) and GlaxoSimithKline (1994-2004) – Trudie’s pioneering approach combines perspectives from business and academia to address the most critical issues of global heath. Her work provides a startling new insight into how economic potential might be unlocked by radically rethinking global heath practices.
In 2002 Trudie was seconded to the World Heath Organisation, building upon a network of collaborating partners that now extends to the US Center for Disease Control, Harvard University, The London and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, The University of Capetown, Institut Pasteur, the European Medicines Agency and the Gates Foundation.
Prior to joining The Global Health Network in 2008, Trudie spent two years as Head of Clinical Trials for the Kemri-Wellcome Programme in Kilfi Kenya.
To date she has published over 58 articles in highly respected journals including Science, Lancet, British Medical Journal and the New England Journal of Medicine.
