Professor David Coggon

OBE, MA, PhD, DM, FRCP, FFOM, FFPH, F Med Sci David Coggan

Professor of Occupational and Environmental Medicine

After studying mathematics and medical sciences at the University of Cambridge, David Coggon undertook his training in clinical medicine at the University of Oxford during 1973-76. He joined the MRC Environmental Epidemiology Unit in 1980 as a clinical scientist. In 1997 he became Professor of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. His research is aimed at informing the management of risk in the workplace and in the general environment. This includes studies on the relation of musculo-skeletal disorders to physical activity, on the health effects of chemical pollutants, and on cultural and psychosocial influences on illness attributed to occupational and environmental exposures.
