Davies Adeloye

Hi there!

I'm a medical doctor and epidemiologist with extensive clinical, research and training experience in Nigeria and the United Kingdom. In October 2011, I was awarded the prestigious Charles Darwin International Scholarship of the University of Edinburgh to pursue a PhD in Population Health Sciences, which I completed in 2014.

Davies Adeloye is an emerging name in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and global haalth epidemiology. In November 2017, I received the African Cancer Leadership Institute (ACLI) award of the African Organization for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC). I am also a recipient of the 2018 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) award for African Researchers. I have also been recognized in the public health research space in Nigeria. In 2017, I won as a co-host the African Carnegie Diaspora Fellowship awarded by the United States Institute of International Education to develop public health curriculum at Covenant University. In 2015, Davies Adeloye was on the headlines of many national and international media outlets for publishing the first nation-wide and regional estimates of hypertension in Nigeria. I have followed this with national and regional estimates of type 2 diabetes, childhood immunization coverage, and dementia, published in reputable journals.

In January 2018, I was appointed Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Global Health Reports.
I am a member of the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), European Association of Science Editors (EASE), American Organization for Research and Training on Cancer (AORTIC) and American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). I head the RcDavies Evidence-based Medicine, a global health research network based in Nigeria, which focusses on generating best evidence on burden of disease across African countries. I am currently a RESPIRE Research Fellow at the Centre for Global Health Research, The University of Edinburgh, UK. I have published at an average of 6 papers per year over the last 5 years, with over 40 publications in respected scientific outlets.
