Susan Jebb is Professor of Diet and Population Health in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford and a Senior Research Fellow at Jesus College. She is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, an NIHR Senior Investigator and a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition. Her research centres on how what we eat affects the risk of gaining weight and the interventions that might be effective to help people lose weight or reduce the risk of diet-related diseases. She has led a series of dietary intervention studies to examine the impact of diet composition on cardiovascular risk and clinical trials to identify effective treatments for obesity. Susan has a particular interest in how scientific evidence on diet is translated into policy and practice, by government, industry, the public health community and the media. She was the science advisor for the Foresight obesity report and subsequently seconded (0.2FTE) to the Department of Health as a science advisor on obesity and food policy (2007-2015). She chaired the government Expert Advisory Group on Obesity (2007-11) and the Responsibility Deal Food Network (2011-15). She is actively involved in a number of events and media projects to engage the public in issues relating to diet and health, including a number of BBC programmes.
