Prof. David Clark

1953 -

Prof. David Clark is Director (Interdisciplinary Studies) and Associate Academic (Institute of Health and Wellbeing) in the University of Glasgow.

"I was educated at the Universities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Aberdeen. Following early postgraduate studies in the sociology of religion, my subsequent research interests centered upon sociological aspects of family life, with a particular interest in aspects of marriage, divorce and re-marriage. Whilst working at the MRC Medical Sociology Unit in Aberdeen in the early 1980s, I began to develop an interest in the sociological aspects of health and illness, which has remained my major research focus.

I was appointed Professor of Sociology at Sheffield Hallam University in 1993 and in 1995 became Professor of Medical Sociology at the University of Sheffield. I founded the International Observatory on End of Life Care at Lancaster University in 2003 and moved to my present post at the University of Glasgow in October 2009.

I am currently engaged in a number of studies concerned with service evaluation relating to the provision of end of life care and with issues of policy development and the international growth of palliative care. I have a particular interest in the historical development of modern end of life care movements and have written a book about the history of the Project on Death in America."
