SPHSU shares in funding for leading disease prevention projects

Two SPHSU projects have gained awards in the first ever round of funding by the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP). UKPRP is investing £25 million into understanding and influencing the social economic and environmental factors that affect our health. The two successful projects received UKPRP Network Awards.

  • Ruth Dundas leads the MatCH-Net: Maternal and Child Health Network. This project will harness cross-country administrative data to evaluate national policy impacts on maternal, infant and child health and health inequalities.
  • Professor Laurence Moore leads PHASE: The Population Health Agent-based Simulation Network. This network will focus on the application and use of agent-based models among researchers and decision makers in order to develop insights into the interdependent and interacting processes that result in non-communicable diseases and health inequalities.
