Are you interested in how health research works?
Are you looking for a chance to contribute?
Cambridge Institute of Public Health is a strong partnership with substantial research and teaching programmes in population sciences and public health. We are based at the University of Cambridge.
What’s our research about?
We work on:
- the causes and patterns of disease in populations
- how our behaviour affects our health – especially our eating and exercise habits, whether we smoke and how much alcohol we drink
- how diagnosis and screening can affect our health and the treatments we get
- chronic diseases like dementia, stroke, heart disease, diabetes and cancer
- how health services work and how they could be improved.
Why do we need people to get involved?
Our researchers often need to recruit volunteers to take part in our studies.
Our researchers also ask for views from members of the public. We ask things like:
- are we asking the right questions in our research?
- do the reports and leaflets we write for the public make sense to people who are not medically trained?
