The school has an outstanding output of research that has contributed to improving health and health-care in the UK and globally. Our research is both methodological and applied, with clinical and non-clinical scientists collaborating on projects that span activity from life-course, genetic and public health epidemiology through to evaluative studies of health technologies.
Our collaborative and multidisciplinary research is carried out by anthropologists, clinicians, epidemiologists, ethicists, geneticists, health economists, psychologists, psychiatrists, general practitioners, public health physicians, nurses, sociologists and statisticians.
There are extensive national and international research collaborations with colleagues in Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan and the USA.
Many academic staff provide health policy advice to government organisations and international bodies. We have strong links with local NHS Primary Care and Hospital Trusts through the BRIG-H collaboration.
