The MRC Centre for Environment and Health undertakes the highest quality research in the fields of environment and health, to inform health policy and the understanding of key issues affecting our society. The Centre achieves this by bringing together the best researchers from all areas of public health, encouraging novel cross-disciplinary approaches, and by providing the highest quality training to new and existing researchers in these fields. The Centre is based upon the principles of openness, transparency, inclusivity and integrity in all its work, with the primary goal of improving national and international public health and protecting the future generations.
The MRC Centre for Environment and Health brings together a number of leading groups conducting research on diverse fields of environment and health at Imperial College London and other partner research institutes in the UK. The Centre is generously funded by the Medical Research Council and has strong links with the National Institute for Health Research Health Protection Research Units (NIHR HPRU) in Chemical and Radiation Threats and Hazards and in Environmental Exposures and Health.

Research at the MRC Centre for Environment and Health focusses on the study of the health effects of ubiquitous environmental hazards of major public health and scientific importance, such as air pollution, noise pollution, non-ionising radiation and other agents.
The Centre’s research is grouped in five complementary themes, from research on Environmental Pollutants, Exposome and Healthy Cities, to Biostatistics and Cohort studies. The Centre’s activities also include leading programmes on Training and Policy Translation.

The Centre's training programme is critical to our overall mission, which includes being the leading European centre for training and career development in environment and health sciences. Our goal is to establish a high-quality training and career development programme for PhD and early-career postdoctoral researchers with a focus on quantitative sciences and on multi-disciplinary and transferable skills in environment and health research.
