Professor Marcus Munafò
Professor of Biological Psychology
University of Bristol, UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKTAS)
Marcus Munafò is Professor of Biological Psychology in the School of Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol, and Director of the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/expsych/research/brain/targ/). His group is part of the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies, and the Medical Research Council Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. His research focuses on understanding pathways into, and the consequences of, health behaviours and mental health, with a particular focus on tobacco and alcohol use. This work includes: 1) observational and genetic epidemiology, and the use of a range of methods that enable stronger causal inference from observational data, such as negative control and Mendelian randomization methods; 2) the laboratory study of cognitive and neurobiological mechanistic pathways that underpin exposure-outcome relationships; and 3) the development of novel individual- and population-level interventions that target these mechanisms, including choice architecture interventions.
