The Health theme has a wide scope, current areas of strength include spatial and spatiotemporal methods in global public health, design and analysis of clinical trials, epidemic forecasting and demographic modelling, health informatics and genetics.

Researchers in this theme partner with a number of external groups including the NHS, Defra as well as Industrial partners. There are also many training initiatives within this theme run both at Lancaster and internationally, for example, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Brazil) and Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome centre (Malawi).
