The Epidemiology and Public Health group (EPH) consists of experienced academics from a variety of background disciplines.  Epidemiological, statistical and clinical trials skills are well represented alongside qualitative methods, medical sociology and evidence synthesis. The group conducts research into a broad area of public and population health problems, with aims to identify risk factors, understand contexts and evaluate potential interventions. Areas of interest are notably related to lifestyles and environment and related to an aging population.
