Using the Aberdeen Birth Cohorts and other collaborations, we study the life course factors which determine resilience, multimorbidity and mental health.
WHO definition of Public Health
“The science and art of promoting and protecting health and well-being, preventing ill-health and prolonging life through the organised efforts of society”
We are led by an academic Consultant in Public Health Medicine, Professor Corri Black, and consist of a multidisciplinary group of researchers. We also work closely with Public Health Consultants and specialists from NHS Grampian.
Our work encompasses a number of research topics, with particular focus on healthcare evidence synthesis, multimorbidity, cohorts and healthy ageing. We offer a range of skills in data science, analysis of longitudinal studies, epidemiology and teaching. We are an outward facing group with a number of local and international collaborations.
