Profile of Dr Kaitlin Wade

Dr. Wade's academic career has focused on the integration of human genetics with population health sciences to improve causality within epidemiological studies. Focusing on relationships across the life-course, her work uses comprehensive longitudinal cohorts, randomized controlled trials and causal inference methods (particularly, Mendelian randomization and recall-by-genotype designs). Kaitlin's research has focused on understanding the relationships between adiposity and dietary behaviours as risk factors for cardiometabolic diseases and mortality. As an Elizabeth Blackwell Institute Early Career Fellow based within the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol, Kaitlin's work uses these methods to understand the causal role played by the human gut microbiome on obesity, colorectal cancer, type 2 diabetes and inflammatory bowel diseases. In addition to her research, Kaitlin is actively involved in organising and administering teaching and public engagement activities as well as having many mentorship and supervisory roles within and external to the University of Bristol
