About us

About us

Our mission is to improve health, care and well-being of people throughout their lives and across all communities and to train the next generations of clinicians and researchers.

Researchers in the Population Health Sciences Institute apply a range of methodological and theoretical approaches to deliver cutting edge research. The research tackles current and future health, wellbeing and care challenges for the benefit of populations locally, nationally and internationally.

We are committed to delivering the highest quality research-led teaching and supervision at undergraduate and postgraduate level and supporting our diverse postgraduate research community. Researchers work collaboratively across a number of the Faculty’s research themes to develop multidisciplinary approaches to pertinent health related research questions. This provides a supportive environment for postgraduate and early career researchers to develop their knowledge, skills and expertise across a range of different disciplines. 

Our mission is to train the next generations of clinicians and researchers and make a demonstrable difference to the health, care and well-being of people throughout their lives and across all communities. Close collaborations between our researchers with the NHS, public health and social care organisations is vital to our aim of influencing clinical practice and promoting health and well-being.
