Centre for Public Health

The Centre for Public Health enables, facilitates, identifies and disseminates public health research in co-production across the University and externally with commissioners and communities - on a local, national and international scale.

Research staff have achieved national and international prominence in public health interventions and disease prevention, and translational public health, working alongside public health organisations to have a real-world impact. Significant research covers major global health issues including oral health, adult and childhood obesity.

These themes are underpinned by strong methodological expertise in qualitative and quantitative research methods, systematic reviewing, service and intervention evaluation, intervention development, co-production, and embedded research.
