Project summary

Sarah-Jo is a pharmacoepidemiologist, interested in using observational data to provide evidence for health at the population level. During her fellowship she'll use the Clinical Practice Research Datalink to research pharmacological treatment options used in resistant hypertension. This is a form of high blood pressure that remains high, even after treating with four types of blood pressure lowering medicines. Sarah-Jo will work with Dr Ian Douglas and Professor Liam Smeeth at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Professor Josh Gagne at the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston.
