  • Intervention Studies (including clinical trials and community based interventions and methods development)
  • Public Health Research (with a focus on alcohol and changing health behaviour)

The Division of Population Health Sciences and School of Medicine have a long history of research utilising large, linked datasets and use their success to establish new local, national and international programmes.
