Population, Policy and Practice

We are a multi-disciplinary group of researchers with an international reputation for population-level and clinical research that influences public health policy and practice. Our aim is to promote the health of children and young people and the adults they will become through conducting research:

  • across the life course

  • on common, chronic and complex conditions, in addition to rare disorders

  • on defining and measuring what matters for children, young people and their families

  • recognising the wider contexts of children's lives
