Register of research studies led by PHE researchers

Public Health England (PHE) is a research-informed organisation that is driving forwards the provision and use of evidence for decision-making across the public health system. Research relevant to health and care is thriving due to sustained investment and new, productive relationships among researchers and those who would use their findings.

PHE researchers undertake research in areas that are relevant to PHE functions. These functions are underpinned by world-class scientific evidence drawn from laboratory and clinical sciences, behavioural and social sciences, data sciences and others. Further details of PHE’s commitment to research can be found in our Research Strategy.

The Research Register

The Research Register provides details of research studies that have been led by PHE researchers and have taken place since summer 2014. Please note this does not include research undertaken in collaboration with universities or other organisations where the lead researcher is not a member of PHE staff.
It will be updated every six months. Last updated: 5th May 2020.
