Research themes

Work and health

Within this theme we are focusing on the inter-relationship between work, health and wellbeing including: the study of people moving in and out of paid employment; the importance of technologies at work; management of health at work; and the development of a broad public health response to promoting health and wellbeing in the workforce.


This theme investigates inequalities in health and access to services across a range of issues including alcohol use and behaviours such as uptake of health checks.

Health and wellbeing across the life course

Researching across the life-course, we have expertise in research in children’s health through to working with older ages, for example health and wellbeing in retirement.

Digital health

Work in this theme includes the design and evaluation of digital applications (apps) for tracking of health and behaviour, and evaluation of the use of social media for health information and support.
