Four-year Wellcome PhD studentships in Public Health Economics and Decision Science

We seek to train the next generation of researchers in conducting high-quality research into the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of complex multi-component public health interventions and policies to reduce non-communicable – or chronic diseases. Funding is available for five cohorts of seven top-calibre PhD students to work on some of the most pressing public health challenges.

Chronic disease accounts for a large proportion of the burden of disease in the developed world…

Much of this burden is due to powerful ‘upstream’ determinants…

Upstream determinants have a complex interaction with ‘downstream’ behavioural factors…

Together, upstream and downstream factors form a complex system of interdependent influences.
