Professor Richie Poulton comes on board

We are delighted to announce that Professor Richie Poulton from the University of Otago will be working closely with Richard Joseph and Associates in a consulting role. He will be acting as an advisor in research and development, ensuring that we maintain the integrity of our research and are up-to-date with the latest scientific developments in our field.

Richie is Director of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Research Unit, which conducts the Dunedin Longitudinal Study — one of the most detailed studies of human health and development ever undertaken, and the longest-running project of its type in the world.

A comprehensive study of 1,037 babies born in Dunedin during 1972-73 involving , the Study members have been followed up since birth, at age 3; then every 2 years to age 15; and at ages 18, 21, 26, 32, and 38.

The Study is now in its fifth decade and has produced over 1150 publications and reports, many of which have influenced or helped inform policy makers in New Zealand and overseas.

Recent assessments have included a broad range of studies in the psychosocial, behavioural medicine and biomedical research areas.

Richie has published more than 150 peer-reviewed scientific papers, with many appearing in leading international journals. He is in high demand as an expert in his field throughout NZ and the world. We are delighted and privileged to have Richie working with us and look forward to his contributions enriching our current and future programmes.
