A new study led by a team of researchers in the School of GeoSciences is seeking to establish the role of the built and physical environments in understanding social inequalities in health.
Funded by the European Research Council for 1.4 million euros over 5 years, this international study is considering how existing secondary datasets might be utilised to answer important questions about the pathways linking the environment to to health. The work commenced on 1st October and is led by Prof Jamie Pearce in collaboration with Dr Niamh Shortt (Edinburgh) and Prof Richard Mitchell (Glasgow). More details about the project will be posted on the 'Centre for Research on Environment, Society and Health'.
