Yolanda Eraso  

Yolanda Eraso is a senior lecturer in health and social care, and course leader for the BSc Public Health and Health Promotion. She has previously taught across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in health studies, health systems and public health at various higher education institutions including London Metropolitan University, Oxford Brookes University and IES London. She was appointed as Wellcome Trust Research Fellow (2007-2010) at Oxford Brookes University after completing a PhD (2006) and MA (2003) in Medical History, both funded by the Wellcome Trust.

In her research, Yolanda draws upon and seeks to integrate historical, social and policy methods of analysis in national and international health contexts. Connected to this, Yolanda’s most recent research is on female cancer (Wellcome Trust grant, WT082964), where she applies a transnational perspective to examine the medical exchanges amongst South-America, Europe and the US that lay the foundations for key developments in cancer organisation, diagnosis, treatment, and control.  She is also involved in a collaborative project on cancer with colleagues from Fiocruz (Brazil), which explores cervical cancer preventive policies in the South American region. Previous research projects have investigated social representations of motherhood from a medical humanities approach, women and welfare, and a series of collaborative and individual research projects on the history of psychiatry and in social studies of mental health in Argentina.

Her work has been funded through grants awarded by the University of Córdoba (secretary of science and technology, and secretary of university-community engagement), Wellcome Trust, ORSAS, Santander, Ministry of Health - Córdoba, Spanish International Cooperation Agency and Oxford Brookes University. She has held visiting research and teaching positions at the Centre for Medicine, Health and Society (Oxford Brookes University), University of Salamanca (Spain), the University of Cordoba (Argentina), Casa Oswaldo Cruz –Fiocruz (Brazil) and IES London. 

She continues her affiliation with the Department of Clinical Health Care, Oxford Brookes University, for the MSc programmes in Cancer Studies and Palliative Care: Global Perspectives.
