Dr Carol Emslie is a Reader within the Institute for Applied Health Research / School of Health and Life Sciences at GCU and leads the Substance Use & Misuse research group. Her research focuses on gender and alcohol use across the lifecourse. Currently, she holds two research grants with the National Institute for Health Research; one project is a multi-centre RCT which explores whether texting innovative messages to men in deprived areas will reduce their binge drinking, while the other is a qualitative study across four cities in the UK exploring barriers and facilitators to immunisation within Gypsy / Traveller Communities. A new study funded by Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems explores the social context of drinking in the LGBT community.
