Professor Nora Colton


Professor Nora Colton is the inaugural Director of the UCL Global Business School for Health (GBSH), the first business school in the world focused on health and health care. Before becoming the Director of GBSH, Nora was the Pro-Vice-Provost (Postgraduate Education) at UCL and the Joint Director of Education for Moorfields Eye Hospital and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology.

Nora is a health and development economist and has undertaken extensive grant-funded projects in various countries in the Middle East as part of her research and publications. Currently, she is working on research projects that compare healthcare financing across different national health systems and questions concerning leadership and management in healthcare settings.

"This initiative is timely given increasing demands on healthcare. The challenges have been well rehearsed, but the solutions at scale continue to evade us. I hope that through this project of Reimagining Health, we can begin a much-needed dialogue of how to advance health and healthcare in the UK.”
