Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Epidemiology programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Epidemiology.

Our main research themes within epidemiology investigate autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, neurological, psychiatric and cognitive genetic epidemiology, male infertility and cancer at a population and family level.

In particular, our research covers:

  • the distribution of disease and related health-behaviours and their relationship with the complex interaction between people, place and time and inequalities;
  • genetic and genomic epidemiology to investigate health and disease, particularly where longitudinal clinical data has been collected;
  • 'omics-based molecular epidemiology, disease risk algorithms, and non-molecular eg occupational and environmental determinants of health and outcomes;
  • the design and implementation of complex interventions, underpinned with evidence from other disciplines including anthropology, social sciences, health psychology and urban planning;
  • the use of more novel applications to capture cross sectional and longitudinal behaviour and outcome measures;
  • using digital/web-based techniques of crowd-sourcing, social media, geo-coding, and machine learning;
  • the use of novel techniques to assess the exposome
  • epidemiological, evaluative and policy related research in the field of substance misuse, within the areas of health and criminal justice.
  • how health service interventions, from policies to lab-based sciences, impact on society more widely.
