Tammy Tong joined the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in January 2017. Her main research interest is the role of diet in health, with a particular focus on cardiovascular diseases. Tammy’s current research examines the health effects of a vegetarian diet, using data from EPIC-Oxford and the UK Biobank. Tammy received her PhD in Nutritional Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge, for which she examined the applicability of the Mediterranean diet in a UK context and its association with cardio-metabolic diseases. She also holds a BSc in Human Sciences (University College London) and an MPhil in Epidemiology (University of Cambridge).
