Richard Wilkinson

Richard studied economic history and the philosophy of science at the London School of Economics before training in epidemiology. He has played a formative role in international research on the social determinants of health and on the effects of income inequality.

He is now Professor Emeritus of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham Medical School, Honorary Professor at University College London and Visiting Professor at the University of York, and co-founder of The Equality Trust. His publications include The Spirit Level, co-written with Kate Pickett, which won the 2011 Political Studies Association Publication of the Year Award and the 2010 Bristol Festival of Ideas Prize. Two of his books have been the subject of documentary films – The Great Leveller for the Channel 4 Equinox series, broadcast in 1996, and The Divide, released in April 2016 and available on Netflix.

In 2013 Richard received Solidar’s Silver Rose Award and received Community Access Unlimited’s ‘Humanitarian of the Year’ Award.  The Irish Cancer Society awarded him the 2014 Charles Cully Memorial medal, and he was the 2017 medalist of The Australian Society for Medical Research.
