UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care - Advancing health across populations
We aim to understand and influence determinants of health and health behaviour across the lifecourse, develop and evaluate cross-sectoral policies and strategies to improve health, and optimise healthcare delivery and practice.
Expertise in epidemiology, medical statistics, health psychology, sociology, health economics, public health, primary care, public policy, and improvement science is found throughout our interdisciplinary teams, which are located across the following four research departments:
We work in partnership with many international agencies, NGOs, Ministries of Health, educational institutions, the UK NHS and enterprise to improve health. The World Health Organisation has designated two of our research groups as WHO Collobrating Centres, which are:
- UCL’s Psychobiology Group in Behavioral Science and Health (WHO Collaborating Centre on Arts & Health)
- UCL's Dental Public Health Research Group (World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre of Oral Health Inequalities and Public Health)
