Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety is also a particular focus of this group, especially in the industrial and agricultural sectors. The group is multi-disciplinary and combines conventional epidemiological approaches with innovative research methodologies such as risk mapping, lay and community epidemiology, and participatory research methods. Topics including: pesticides; industrial carcinogens; air pollution; food pollution; environmental health.

Our research aims to develop the evidence base available to health care workers and policy makers. Through active engagement with these groups, our research has a direct impact on health policy and practice.
