The school is a leading centre for research in population health sciences contributing to significant health care improvements and policy change around the world.
Research in the school is collaborative and multi-disciplinary, with staff coming from a wide range of academic disciplines and clinical specialties.
The school's world class research was recognised in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise which ranked our expertise in the top ten nationally.
Our multidisciplinary team of clinical and research scientists tackle many key public health and health care issues facing high and low income countries, such as obesity, AIDS, mental illness, child health, cancer detection and treatment using epidemiological, statistical and social science methods. Many of our academics provide health policy advice to government and international bodies and work in partnership with colleagues in India, Chile, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Norway, Belarus, Australia, Denmark, Taiwan and the USA.There are several major research themes and research projects within the school. Most notable of these are the MRC Centre for Causal Analyses in Translational Epidemiology (CAiTE) and the world-renowned Children of the 90s study. The school is also a member of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research and the NIHR School for Public Health.
Based in state-of-the-art facilities the school is home to a range of large research groupings.
Engagement with a range of University research themes reflects the highly multi-disciplinary and collaborative nature of research in the school.
Clinical and non-clinical scientists collaborate on projects that span activity from life-course, genetic and public health epidemiology through to evaluative studies of health technologies.
