Dr Nicola Lindson

Research Member of Common Room

University Research Lecturer & Cochrane Managing Editor

Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences

I am a Chartered Psychologist with a PhD in behavioural medicine (awarded by the University of Birmingham). My main research interests lie within the topic of nicotine addiction and smoking cessation, and I am particularly interested in the areas of harm reduction and gradually reducing smoking to quit. I have been involved in large multi-centre RCTs of smoking cessation interventions and also specialise in carrying out systematic reviews, as the Managing Editor of the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group. In 2016 I led a priority setting exercise, which used stakeholder engagement to set research priorities in the field of tobacco control. As well as being used by the Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group, the results have also been used by the NIHR and the French National Cancer Institute to set their funding priorities. I hold the title of University Research Lecturer in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, where I contribute to teaching on both the undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum and am employed as an Associate Lecturer for Cochrane UK.
