Giuseppe 'Nick' Giordano

Associate Professor of Public Health Epidemiology, Lund University

I am currently the Head of the Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology (GAME) unit at Lund University Diabetes Centre, Sweden, currently busy with several IMI/EU-funded projects, whose focus are on type 2 diabetes and obesity research.

In parallel to my non-communicable diseases research, I maintain links with Political and Social Sciences, and Public Health. As such, I am currently investigating the genetic underpinnings of (dis)trusting personality traits and their links to cardiovascular health outcomes.

I am a relative latecomer to academia, having practised dentistry in the UK and Australia for 14 years, prior to defending my PhD at Lund University Medical Faculty, in May, 2012.
