Postgraduate research: Population Health Sciences
Population health research aims to improve the health and wellbeing of society and reduce inequalities.
Population health researchers explore how and why morbidity and mortality varies within and between populations.
We evaluate novel clinical and public health interventions to see if they work, how they work, and whether they are affordable.
We encourage applications for research projects in many areas, including:
- human genetics
- psychology applied to health.
You can either pick one of our research projects or develop your own in a related area.
