Research Programs

Our research programs are either cross-cutting platforms, such as biostatical methods for epidemiology and implementation science, or sit within a research theme. Each research program has a named leader and oversees a number of projects. Our researchers work across projects, programs and themes in dynamic groups that best harness the range of skills and interests across the breadth of disciplines.

Our research methods

One of our hallmarks is that our research employs a range of methodologies and epistemologies. Some of our methodological strengths are discipline-based, including:

  • epidemiology: randomised controlled trials, cohort studies and case-control studies
  • mathematics: quantitative disease modelling and statistical analysis of health studies
  • sociology and anthropology: qualitative research
  • implementation science: integrated research to inform policy and practice change
  • spatial epidemiology: to understand the geographic distribution of disease in relation to environmental factors

Two of our research programs, Biostatical Methods for Epidemiology and Implementation Sciences, are cross-cutting platforms that integrate and support all of NCEPH’s research.
