Our Research

The Department of Health Sciences is very much a research-led department with established strengths across epidemiology, medical statistics, public health, primary care, health services research, and psychiatry. Structured to support innovative multidisciplinary and multi-method solutions to research questions, its mission is to conduct high quality scientific research that can inform policies and practices aimed at securing people's health and well-being.

Our key objectives are:

  • to conduct methodological research that can underpin robust research design and data analysis
  • to produce evidence that can improve understanding of the aetiology, management and prevention of disease, including complex chronic physical and mental disorders
  • to produce evidence that can improve health service organisation and delivery
  • to disseminate our research outputs to the international scientific community, to practitioners, to policy-makers, and to health service users
