Dr Michele Hilton Boon
- Research Associate (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)
Within the Informing Healthy Public Policy programme I focus on evidence synthesis methods and public health policy evaluation. I am working on Cochrane reviews that evaluate the taxation of sugar-sweetened beverages and sugar-added foods. I also research the application of GRADE methodology in public health.
Prior to joining SPHSU, I worked as a programme manager in the National Health Service for ten years, where my projects included national clinical guidelines, the national cancer quality indicator programme, and healthcare standards.
In 2016-17 I was a European Respiratory Society Fellow in Guidelines Methodology based at the Iberoamerican Cochrane Centre, Barcelona, and at NICE in Manchester.
