NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC)
Within the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust the Population Science Cluster, led by Professor Charles Wolfe, provides interdisciplinary skills in public health, primary care, epidemiology, statistics, health economics and social sciences for research and training. This complements theme expertise in environmental health, diabetes, cancer, transplantation, infection and stroke that will contribute to optimising the focus, effectiveness and impact of translational research in the BRC. The major questions are:
- Promoting excellence and effectiveness in translational research: How can the BRC engage and access populations effectively? How can the translational research pipeline be made more effective and efficient to improve clinical and population outcomes?
- How can a digital infrastructure support a learning healthcare system?
- Does personalised medicine improve population health?
- What is the effect of the environment on respiratory and cardiovascular health?
