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.
