He has authored/co-authored over 160 published papers, and edited several books. He received a prestigious VENI grant to develop international collaborative project between the Netherlands and the UK. He is a project leader and scientific coordinator of the RODAM project – European Commission funded project on gene-environmental interaction on obesity & diabetes among African migrants (http://www.rod-am.eu/), and co-investigator of the EC-funded InterConnect project (http://www.interconnect-diabetes.eu/).

Charles was a member and a rapporteur of the Planning Committee for World Health Organization (WHO) Global Consultation on Migrant Health in 2008; and a core member of the European Hypertension Society Working group on Hypertension & Cardiovascular Risk in Low Resource Settings.

Research programmes

Ethnic Inequalities in Cardiovascular Diseases and Risk Factors

The main focus of my research is on ethnic differences in cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and risk factors.
Current projects:
 

1. The RODAM RODAM project (http://rod-am.eu/). This is an European Commission funded project under the Framework programme (FP-7). RODAM is a large multi-centre study and aims at assessing the role of, and the relative contribution of genetics and environmental factors to the high risk of diabetes and obesity among one homogenous African migrant group (Ghanaians) living in three European countries (The Netherlands, England and Germany) and their compatriots living in rural and urban Ghana.

2. Ethnicity and prognosis after initial hospital admission for cardiovascular disease - A follow-up study. This project is based on linkage of nationwide registers is being funded by the Netherlands Heart Foundation. This is a collaborative project between Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, Utrecht Medical Centre and Academic Medical Centre, University of Amsterdam.
