Centre of Excellence for Public Health Northern Ireland

Centre of Excellence for Public Health Northern Ireland

The new UKCRC Northern Ireland Centre of Excellence for Public Health at Queen’s University, in partnership with The Institute of Public Health in Ireland, will lead to significant improvements in the wellbeing and health of the UK population.

The Centre, one of only five in the UK, is part of a £20 million investment programme under the umbrella of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC). The multi-partnership Centre, which will focus on nutrition and physical activity, has been awarded £5 million over five years to strengthen research into key public health issues such as obesity, diet and smoking.

The Centre brings together leading experts from a range of disciplines working in partnership with practitioners, policy makers and wider stakeholders, to build research capacity and tackle the major public health issues that are affecting the health of the nation today.
