Distinguished Professor Neville Owen
Neville is Distinguished Professor in Health Sciences and Head of the Behavioural Epidemiology Laboratory, Baker Heart & Diabetes Institute. His research deals with preventing type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer, through understanding and influencing physical activity and sedentary behaviours (too little exercise and too much sitting). This includes studies on behavioural measurement, epidemiological and experimental analyses of the health consequences of inactivity, and identifying new opportunities for disease prevention through the workplace and via environmental and policy initiatives. He is a Thomson-Reuters highly-cited researcher and has published some 500 peer-reviewed papers and co-edited a new book: Sedentary Behavior and Health (Human Kinetics, 2017). His research findings contribute to improving population health and healthy ageing, through informing innovations in transport, urban planning, workplace policy, and health care.
