Quantitative skills are increasingly important in global health, allowing health organisations, such as government departments and the World Health Organisation, to identify national and international burden of disease and to target public health interventions successfully. Translating quantitative methods in epidemiology and global health from science into policy is highly important if communities are to benefit from modern scientific innovations.

Lancaster University’s MRes Global Health is designed to develop your skills in quantitative and translational research, preparing you to meet international demands for cutting edge science informing beneficial health programmes in vulnerable communities world-wide. You will be given the opportunity to gain highly sought-after skills in international health policy advice, government/non-government public health research, and health data science.

With an emphasis on quantitative research, the course aims to train you as a bridge scientist able to work in multi-disciplinary teams, translating scientific innovations into practical improvements to peoples' health and prosperity in a wide range of countries.

The MRes is ideal for those with a scientific background and who are interested in furthering their skills around health questions globally. In particular, this course suits graduates with quantitative, life sciences, or clinical degrees.

You will study modules in quantitative, qualitative, and translational science, and on graduating will be able to join international research groups to make original and high-impact contributions addressing the world's most important health questions.

The MRes is based at Lancaster University, though project work is supervised in conjunction with Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and other international partner institutions.

Four core modules will give you a broad introduction to quantitative and qualitative methods with a focus on global health. A choice of three optional modules will allow you to further your skills in areas such as advanced statistics, geostatistical and infectious disease models, health economics, and bioinformatics.

In addition, you will work on three individual projects on topics related to global health in the UK and overseas. UK projects are supervised by Lancaster University and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Overseas projects will be undertaken with international partner institutions, such as MLW in Malawi, Noguchi in Ghana, and Fio Cruz in Brazil.
