Professor John Wright, Clinician and epidemiologist

Professor John Wright is a clinician and epidemiologist who established the Born In Bradford study in 2007. His career has been guided by a determination to remove inequality from healthcare and health outcomes, which has taken him to Pakistan to support child health studies, Sierra Leone to lead a team in the Ebola crisis, and Eswatini, where he established a public health training programme. He has lived and worked in Bradford for 30 years, and sees the city as a unique setting for bridging the gap between health research and evidence-based interventions.
