Overview

One of the key goals of the MRC Centre is to translate and apply the findings from our research, as well as the broader scientific knowledge in our areas of expertise, to inform important policy questions on environment and health.
Centre members are actively engaged in a variety of advisory and policy roles, providing expert input to government and public health agencies. These activities promote the development of science-based policies on environment and health at a national and international level. We focus our policy-related work in three overlapping strategic areas: air pollution sources and health impacts; disease and risk factor surveillance; and risk assessment.
