Our core research is funded by the UK Prevention Research Partnership, a £50 million multi-funder initiative that supports novel research into the primary prevention of non-communicable diseases to improve population health and reduce health inequalities.
The UKPRP vision is to generate fresh insights into actionable, sustainable and cost-effective ways of preventing non-communicable diseases in the UK. They fund:
- Consortia – large interdisciplinary collaborations to undertake research into a specific challenge in the primary prevention of non-communicable diseases.
- Networks – interdisciplinary communities built around broad challenges in the primary prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). UKPRP funding enables interactions between the diverse network members to draw together expertise and perspectives for generating fresh insights on how to best tackle NCDs.
We also hold grants from the:
- Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Research Network
- MRC’s Public Health Intervention Development Fund
- Health Foundation
We have PhD Studentships funded through the Universities of Glasgow, Leeds, Strathclyde and Sheffield, and significant in-kind contributions from many of our policy and practice partners.
We are always keen to develop new links with interested research centres, local and national governments, as well as health- and social justice-focused charities and interest groups. We want to ensure our new methods and findings are helpful to everyone who may use them. Please get in touch!
