The broad focus of work in the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health is on the determinants and impact of ill-health, and on evaluation of interventions to improve treatment and reduce the burden of disease. There is a strong emphasis on the relevance of such work to public health and the translation of findings into programme action and health policy. The Faculty is multidisciplinary and we maintain strong interests in methodological research.
The Faculty is organised into five research Departments: The Department of Population Studies, the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, the Department of Medical Statistics, the Department of Non-communicable Disease Epidemiology and the Department of Nutrition & Public Health Intervention. Research is conducted all over the world and is funded from over 70 sources including UK research councils, medical charities, and other organisations.
We have a strong focus on teaching and training both masters and doctoral students. Currently we have 54 doctoral students undertaking a wide range of research. Topics include reproductive health, epidemiology of ageing and eye disease, public health nutrition and statistical methodology.
