Prevention Science Group

Recent successes from the Prevention Science Group include an Early Career award for Parvati Perman-Howe for a researcher showing outstanding promise, and David Foxcroft was awarded the European Society for Prevention Research EUSPR) Sloboda Medal for the impact his work has had on prevention science in Europe and internationally.

In  addition, the recent book "Drug Policy and the Public Good (2nd Edition)" was highly commended in the Public Health category at the British Medical Association Book Awards this year. The book is co-authored by David and colleagues and the judges said that "over 600 projects were submitted for consideration to the judging panel this year, and only the most outstanding were ‘highly commended."  Further details of the book, including the other authors, can be found at the publishers website. One of David Foxcroft's recent co-authors, Peter Reuter, was recently awarded the Stockholm Prize for his work on the criminology of drug markets. The Stockholm Prize is very highly regarded and seen as the equivalent of a Nobel for Criminology.
