Martin David Slade MPH

Lecturer in Medicine (Occupational Medicine) and in Epidemiology (Environmental Health)


Research Summary

Mr. Slade's current research interests include the development of analytical models to evaluate the effects of physical and psychosocial factors on the patterns of disease and injury within industrial workplaces as well as psychosocial influences on aging, in particular, how older individuals’ perceptions of aging affect cognition and health in old age. Additionally, Mr. Slade's research interests include the effect of mechanical hearing protection and pharmacological interventions on the reduction of noise induced hearing loss.
