Bristol Population Health Science Institute
Engaging populations to improve health
A multi-disciplinary approach to studying the health of populations, spanning molecules to communities
Bristol Population Health Science Institute is a new centre that builds on Bristol’s internationally-leading reputation for research in the determinants and consequences of ill-health.
Our research ranges from basic discovery science in molecular and genetic epidemiology to innovative clinical trials and policy-influencing and assessment activities. Our multi-disciplinary community spans across several Schools and Faculties within the University and tackles a wide range of questions about health and health care.
