Professor Marian Knight: Leading maternal and child research

Season 2, Episode 10,  Nov 19, 2021, 05:51 AM

Professor Marian Knight (1986) is a maternal and child health researcher and public health physician and was recently elected a Fellow of the Academy for Medical Sciences. She leads @mbrrace and @NPEU-UKOSS and has spoken widely about Covid and pregnancy as well as ethnic disparities in maternity care.

In this conversation, she talks about these issues and the research these organisations have been carrying out, but she also talks about the role of the medical researcher herself, and the lifestyle that comes in a role where two of Marian's loves at school, maths and the sciences, are rolled in to one.
