Populations & Lifelong Health


UCL is host to a wide range of Population and Clinical Cohorts, as well as Electronic Health Record studies. These prospective and retrospective cohort studies follow a group of people who share a common characteristic or experience (e.g. are born, or undergo a particular medical treatment) and use correlations to analyse risk factors.

A Review of UCL Population Health Cohorts

The UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain is currently supporting a review of population health cohorts, which is being led by Professor Aroon Hingorani

The review aims to:

  • identify large Population, Clinical and Electronic Health Record studies hosted at UCL
  • support the development of a cohort strategy, which would aim to provide a supportive environment, share best practice and capitalise on opportunities for synergy and connectivity between these cohorts 
  • raise awareness of these cohorts across UCL to facilitate new research, maximising their usage.
