INTRODUCTION

The Health Behaviour Research Centre undertakes research aimed at advancing our understanding of behaviours that have a major impact on health and to contribute to the development of interventions to promote healthy lifestyles. The Centre is part of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, UCL.

It receives core funding from Cancer Research UK and is staffed mainly by health and clinical psychologists. Additional funding is received from the Medical Research Council, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, the Department of Health, and the British Heart Foundation.

The three main areas of research are dietary choice, participation in screening programmes, and tobacco smoking. Dietary choice and smoking have together been estimated to account for up to 70 percent of all cancer deaths, as well as having an important role in heart disease.
