Department of Epidemiology and Population Health

The Department of Epidemiology and Population Health (EPH) comprises a multidisciplinary team of around 50 scientists and post-graduate students working across the key research themes of the Institute of Infection and Global Health.

Our research covers major animal and human health in the UK, Europe and globally. Our  work seeks to understand the behaviour of diseases and pathogens in populations and communities, their spread and their distribution in space and time, and the determinants of these factors. We also address the interplay between disease and our natural and social environments in order to assess both current effects and future impacts in our rapidly changing world.
