Professor Angela Wood is the BHF Data Science Centre Associate Director and Theme Lead for Structured Data and plays a leading role in the BHF Data Science Centre’s CVD-COVID-UK/COVID-IMPACT consortium.
The focus of Angela’s theme is whole-population linked health data. This theme is about enabling research that benefits patients and the public through secure and safe access for researchers to multiple sources of high-quality, linked healthcare data at a UK population-wide scale.
Structured Data refers to information from electronic health records such as GP and hospital systems providing information about health conditions and hospital admissions in a well-defined or ‘structured’ way.
Angela is also Professor of Health Data Science at the University of Cambridge, where she leads a programme of research in medical statistics and lectures in statistical epidemiology.
