Global health issues

The current focus for our priority on global health issues includes:

  • Women’s health: life cycle and ageing
  • Environmental health: air and water pollution
  • One health and zoonotic infections

These are reflected in the following specialist, inter-disciplinary centres:

Centre of Longitudinal and Life Course Research - this centre conducts research on a broad range of health issues across the human lifespan.

Cancer Prevention Research Centre - this centre investigates behavioural risk factors for major cancers.
