Chronic disease epidemiology and the health of populations in transition

Our interests are in the epidemiology and prevention of chronic diseases. We have a particular interest in these conditions in low and middle income countries and also in determining the most important risk factors for chronic disease.

Research areas include: ageing and health, transitions in health and disability, understanding child disability, improving quality of life, technologies and the environment, cognitive impairment and dementia.

Public health improvement

The public health improvement theme conducts applied health research with a focus on the development, evaluation and translation of health interventions. Research areas include: understanding and tackling health inequalities, understanding and changing health related behaviours, evaluation of public health policy, public health nutrition, prevention of alcohol misuse.
