Ben Lacey studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, qualifying in 2004. He trained as a specialist in public health in Oxford, during which time he received a master's degree in Global Health Science and a doctorate in Epidemiology. He is a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health (UK) and an Honorary Consultant in Public Health Medicine at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. He joined the Nuffield Department of Population Health in 2015, where he leads a programme of work using routine health data (including electronic health records) and large-scale prospective cohort studies to understand the burden and determinants of vascular disease.
