Dr Manj Sandhu

Steering Committee Member

Department of Public Health and Primary Care


Manj Sandu’s research focuses on the integration of principles and
procedures underlying population genetics and epidemiology. Together
with current and emerging genome-wide technologies, this approach
provides unparalleled opportunities to identify the biological
mechanisms underlying the development of complex diseases and
traits. His work has largely centred on the genetic basis of cardiometabolic traits and diseases, particularly lipid metabolism and coronary artery disease, and the use of genetic tools for causal inference. More recently, he has begun developing epidemiological resources to explore genomic diversity and its impact on infectious and cardiometabolic risk factors and diseases in Sub-Saharan African populations, as part of a public health and epidemiological research programme.

About us

The Trust & Technology Initiative brings together and drives forward interdisciplinary research from Cambridge and beyond to explore the dynamics of trust and distrust in relation to internet technologies, society and power; to better inform trustworthy design and governance of next generation tech at the research and development stage; and to promote informed, critical, and engaging voices supporting individuals, communities and institutions in light of technology’s increasing pervasiveness in societies.
