Clinical and Population Science Department

What we do

The Clinical and Population Sciences Department delivers transdisciplinary epidemiological, biostatistical, health services and clinical research geared towards translating cardiovascular and cardiometabolic research into effective societal benefit.

We have a track record in internationally-leading research in applied epidemiology, development of research methodology, randomised controlled trials, nationwide clinical registers, observational cohorts and health informatics data. We work closely with local, national and international research groups to uncover new mechanistic pathways and novel therapeutic targets that can be taken from bench to bedside and into clinical studies.
