Dr Grace Redhead


I am an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Postdoctoral Fellow, working on the project 'Identity, citizenship and sickle cell anaemia in the postcolonial National Health Service', developing my doctoral research. My research interests include histories of activism, genetic medicine, the British welfare state and oral history methodologies. I completed my PhD at University College London in 2019, and before entering academia I worked in health information and policy at Cancer Research UK.
