Join our pre-application webinar on Monday 30th November to ask questions and speak directly with Professor Alan Brennan, one of the programme directors! More details on our ‘Apply’ page.

We seek to train the next generation of researchers in conducting high-quality analysis of the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of complex multi-component public health interventions and policies to reduce non-communicable or chronic diseases. In 2019, we were awarded funding from Wellcome for five cohorts of seven top-calibre PhD students to work on some of the most pressing public health challenges. We are now recruiting  the second cohort of seven PhD students – information on how to apply can be found here

Chronic disease accounts for a large proportion of the burden of disease in high-income countries…

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.
