Associate Professor Maia Lesosky of the Division of Epidemiology & Biostatistics has been awarded a Newton Advanced Fellowship from the Royal Society, in partnership with the Academy of Medical Sciences for the period 2019-2021.
The Fellowship aims to enable established international researchers with an opportunity to develop the research strengths and capabilities of their research groups through training, collaboration and reciprocal visits with a partner in the UK.
During the Fellowship, Dr Lesosky will collaborate with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) and the Centre for Health Informatics, Computing and Statistics (CHICAS) at the University of Lancaster Medical School. The research groups will join forces to extend Bayesian statistical methods for the analysis of multilevel models relating to exposure and lung health.
