Luanluan Sun is an epidemiologist based in the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit.
Luanluan was awarded her Bachelor of Medicine, and Master of Public Health in China. Following this, she studied a DPhil in Population Health from the Nuffield Department of Population Health at University of Oxford, as a Clarendon Scholar. Her doctoral work focused on major blood lipids and ischaemic stroke and intracerebral haemorrhage, incorporating observational, and genetic evidence, supplemented with worldwide randomised clinical trial evidence.
After completing her DPhil, Luanluan joined the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit where she continued her research on cardiovascular epidemiology, including: (i) Incorporating genomic, and metabolic approaches to understand the determinants of cardio-metabolic disease; (ii) Evaluating the predictive value of genetic, and other molecular markers in cardiovascular risk prediction; (iii) Global vascular health.
