Faculty contact:

The Faculty expands the limits of epidemiology and addresses some of the largest public health problems in the world. We are home to the largest grouping of epidemiologists in Europe with research expertise ranging from clinical trials, statistical analysis genetic epidemiology, large-scale observational studies and field trials through to the design and evaluation of clinical and public health interventions in low, middle and high-income countries. We aim to inform the biological understanding of diseases and provide evidence for decision making in public health using methodologically rigorous  and innovative approaches.

The Faculty has around 300 academic staff and 150 research students. They work in more than 20 countries on a range of diseases from HIV and cardiovascular disease to mental health. We run a range of popular and respected master’s degree programmes, specialist CPD and short courses.

The Faculty is fully committed to the Athena SWAN Charter and holds a bronze award.
