"Welcome to Public Health at Glasgow University. We have a vibrant and successful research group here, studying how disease occurs across populations, asking who is more likely to get ill, how and why, and what works to protect and enhance everyone's health and wellbeing. The areas we specialise in include chronic diseases, particularly cancer and cardiovascular disease, the relationships between work and health, how the places we live in affect our health and behaviour, and health inequalities.


Our excellent research feeds into our teaching. We run a world renowned Masters in Public Health course, teach  medical students and run other CPD courses too.  Public Health at Glasgow is a fantastic place to work and study and we are also strongly committed to the principles of equality and diversity so please take some time to explore our website and get in touch if you have any questions."
