Prof Boyd Swinburn is a researcher in the School of Population Health at the University of Auckland. His work to improve our understanding and responses to obesity, under-nutrition and climate change is an AMRF Success Story.

The AMRF is pleased to support Prof Swinburn’s research with a Kellaway Medical Research Fellowship. He will travel the world, particularly to low and middle income countries, to undertake validity testing of the findings of the Lancet Commission on Obesity, which met in Auckland in July 2017.
