Established in 2012, we are one of eight Schools that sit within the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences. We have strong links with a number of associate Social Scientists in Health academics based in the School of Social and Political SciencesCollege of Social Sciences and elsewhere in University of Glasgow.

We are strongly committed to the principles of equality and diversity, and in 2018 won a coveted Athena Swan Gold award. Through our inter-disciplinary programme of world-leading research and excellent research-led teaching we aim to improve population health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities in health. Our research spans three research themes and is delivered across six research groups. Our academics have a wide range of skills and expertise and our external collaborators include academics, the Scottish and UK Governments, the NHS, local authorities, and the voluntary and private sectors.
