MRC Centre of Epidemiology for Child Health
The mission of the centre is to:
- improve the health and wellbeing of children through interdisciplinary collaborative research that addresses questions central to clinical practice, public health and public policy.
- understand how biological, genetic, developmental, environmental and social factors during early life influence the health and wellbeing of children and adults.
- improve the scientific basis for strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect children and the adults they will become.
- increase research capacity by providing training in epidemiology, biostatistics and public health applied to children.
- provide an independent source of scientific expertise on children's health.
Working with us
We welcome the chance to exchange knowledge and to work with other researchers and organisations actively engaged in or interested in developing policy and child health research.
Whether a long-distance collaboration between research
institutions or brief interactions to exchange ideas or provide expert
opinion we are keen to explore options that help us achieve our aim of
improving child health.
Secondments or sabbaticals
We are always interested to hear from those wishing to extend their skills and experience in paediatric epidemiology and statistics from across the UK and overseas.
Our researchers received their original training in a variety of disciplines, from clinical medicine to geography, and we value the input of researchers from a diversity of backgrounds.
We share our knowledge and expertise through involvement with other key
health and research organisations. It is beneficial for the centre and
our research and benefits us and supports the wider health and research
