As well as inviting external speakers to our seminar series, we also use the seminar series as a platform to promote the research in our Faculty. In June we welcome the Centre for Public Health and Population Health Research to the podium to present a summary of their recent research activity.
Centre for Public Health and Population Health Research (CPHPHR)
The key aim of CPHPHR is to produce policy and practice-relevant research that will improve the health of populations (in Scotland, the UK and beyond) and reduce health inequalities. Within this broad aim, we have four key programmes of research. Our staff and students typically work across these programmes on specific research projects. These programmes are:
- Public Health Policy Evaluation, which focuses on research into tobacco control.
- Applied Epidemiology for Public Health, which includes research themes around common health conditions, including diabetes and liver cancer.
- Social and Economic Determinants of Health and Health Inequalities, which includes research on occupational and environmental health, the social-to-biological transition and health inequality policy and practice.
- Health Behaviour Change, where research interests span various health behaviours, but there is a keen interest in physical activity for health.
