People » Paul Aveyard

Professor of Behavioural Medicine

My research focuses on behavioural medicine. This is the intergration of biological, psychological and sociological knowledge to prevent and treat disease and to aid rehabilitation.
 
My work focuses on helping people change their behaviour, either to prevent serious disease, or as a treatment for that disease.  
 
A lot of my work has examined interventions to help people stop or reduce their smoking and lately I have worked in helping people manage their weight if they have become obese.
