Applied Health Research

Organisational unit: School

Organisation profile

Our world leading experts help to tackle global health challenges. We aim to improve health by preventing illnesses and improving healthcare through community-based and hospital-based research and methodological innovations.

Our vision is to attract – and retain – the very best researchers to our world-class facilities who will go on to produce original and distinctive globally leading research, with the ultimate goal of improving human health and wellbeing.

We target health burdens and inequalities across the lifespan locally and globally through two broad themes:

  • Population health and primary care research
  • Healthcare evaluation and methodology

We conduct research to inform practitioners and policy makers on novel ways to improve health. The Institute also has an extensive portfolio that we broadly describe as ‘methodological’, that would ultimately underpin the efforts to tackle major health problems globally.  Our experts provide key inputs to a wide range of applied health and translational research in the University and beyond.
