Prof Joan Morris
My work with Professor Sir Nicholas Wald is in evaluating the effectiveness of screening strategies for many different disorders, for example heart disease (including the meta-analytic work on the "polypill"?), familial hypercholesterolaemia, cystic fibrosis, fragile X syndrome, neural tube defects and Down syndrome. Recent work includes mathematically modeling the population effect of cascade testing for a range of disorders, as well as developing statistical methods in epidemiology.

Prof Nicholas Wald
My research interests include epidemiology, public health, and screening (ante-natal, cancer, cardio-vascular). I am the innovator of the "Polypill", a new approach to the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, and with my son David have conducted a trial demonstrating the expected effect of a polypill. I have also worked on primary prevention of serious disorders such as neural tube defects and lung cancer. I have pioneered research on the benefits of Folic Acid during pregnancy, as well as the Barts Triple Test for early detection of Down's syndrome.
