About the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit
The Medical Research Council Integrative Epidemiology Unit (MRC IEU) is one of the UK's leading units for research in aetiological epidemiology (the study of the causes of diseases and the factors underlying their spread within populations).
The MRC IEU was established in June 2013, with George Davey Smith as Unit Director. The MRC IEU is hosted by the Bristol Medical School: Population Health Sciences, based in Oakfield House, and involves staff from all faculties across the University of Bristol.
The MRC IEU brings together an innovative collection of methodological and applied research programmes. Training, public engagement and communication of research findings are cornerstones of our activities.
Substantial investment from both the UK Medical Research Council and the University of Bristol provides resources, research support and infrastructure to world-leading, multidisciplinary research in a vibrant and forward-looking environment.
