Principal Research Associate at Cambridge Public Health

Louise Lafortune is a Principal Research Associate at Cambridge Public Health and leads its Lifecourse and Ageing research pillar.

She believes older people should be able to live full, engaged lives in their chosen communities. Her research aims to promote healthy lifespans and equity, targeting systems, interventions and technologies that help people maintain their independence and quality of life as they age. Using a multidisciplinary lens, her recent work looks at the social return on investment of age-friendly and ageing well approaches; the mitigation of frailty in older adults; and the developing area of ageing and sustainability.

Louise is Principal Investigator (PI) for both the School for Public Health Research (SPHR) and the Social Return on Investment of Age Friendly Communities Public Health Research programme. She leads the Population Evidence and Data Science theme for the Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) East of England; co-leads the SPHR Public Mental Health programme. She currently serves on the WHO Technical Advisory Group for Measurement, Monitoring and Evaluation of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing, and regularly sits on research/policy advisory boards and international funding panels.

She holds a dual PhD in Public Health (Université de Montreal and Université de Paris) and nine years of industry engagement in clinical trials, health economics and outcomes research.
