Loughborough academic invited to be Visiting Fellow and Visiting Professor at Princeton University

Princeton University, one of America’s oldest and most auspicious Ivy League universities, has invited Loughborough academic Noël Cameron to be both a Visiting Fellow and Visiting Professor.

Noël, who is Professor of Human Biology in Loughborough University’s Department of Human Sciences, has carried out extensive research on factors affecting human growth and development. In 1990 he initiated a birth cohort study of 4,000 children in Soweto-Johannesburg, South Africa, that is now the most detailed study of child health and growth in any developing country.

Professor Cameron’s publications, relating child health to social and economic development in post-apartheid South Africa, resulted in Princeton University inviting him to give a presentation to its Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs in July 2006.

The success of that visit resulted in an offer to be Visiting Fellow at Princeton’s Centre for Health and Wellbeing and Visiting Professor in Public and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School. The Fellowship and Professorship will be taken up between February and July 2008, during which time Professor Cameron will give a series of lectures on health and nutrition in developing countries.
