Newnham Associates are an elected group of 60 Newnham alumnae, representing all subjects, broad life experiences, and most career routes and industry sectors. 

Current Newnham students and recent graduates are welcome to contact any Associate for help or advice. 

There is a contact form under each person's profile here, which will send an email directly to that individual Associate.

Do click through to LinkedIn profiles wherever they are available - there's often a lot more information there.

Susan Laing

I am an epidemiologist and, although having four sons, have managed (just about) to juggle work and home and continue to work part-time

After a PhD in medicine studying peripheral vascular disease I ran a cohort study of 23, 000 subjects with type I diabetes at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and later at the Institute of Cancer Research.  I then went back to LSHTM and studied for the MSc in Epidemiology before working in West Africa.  

I have recently finished a cohort study of birth outcomes at a health centre in The Gambia.  The aim of the study was to establish a baseline measure of neonatal deaths and stillbirths at the end of the era of the Millennium Development Goals against which to measure future improvements.  I am also examining risk factors for low birthweight.  In addition to my current studies I am planning a screening programme for CVD risk factors in The Gambia

I am based at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School and teach on the MSc in Global Health.

In addition we provide some financial support to postgraduate Newnham students from developing countries.
