Course content

Our PhD/MPhil programme enables you to undertake a research project that will provide you with high quality training in Occupational and Environmental Health.

Our research investigates the relationship between occupational and environmental exposures (e.g. air pollution, radiation, pesticides, carcinogens), the exposome and human health. In addition, we carry out studies to determine the impact of interventions to reduce exposure on the health of populations as well as studies of stress and wellbeing and of factors that affect return to work by patients following or during treatment. These studies are generally highly multidisciplinary, involving epidemiologists and health scientists, statisticians, toxicologists, clinicians, social scientist, molecular scientists, and geneticists.
