Welcome to the website of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow.
Our aim is to promote human health via the study of social and environmental influences on health.
Our more specific objectives include:
studying how people's social positions, and their social and physical environments, influence their physical and mental health and capacity to lead healthy lives,
designing and evaluating interventions aiming to improve public health and reduce social inequalities in health, and
influencing policy and practice by communicating the results and implications of research to a wide range of audiences.
The Unit receives core funding from the UK Medical Research Council and the Chief Scientist Office at the Scottish Government Health Directorates. It is a University Unit within the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow and is part of the Institute of Health and Wellbeing.
The Unit’s research is divided into nine programmes. There is considerable overlap and joint working between these programmes, and many projects (and especially studentship projects), may straddle across two or more programmes.
