Coming together as the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health

Coming together as NCEPH
9 February 2022

The ANU has proudly led epidemiology and population health research for many decades, and we will continue to be at the forefront of improving the physical and mental health of communities. We are also dedicated educators and trainers, and our Centre is home to Australia’s only accredited field epidemiology training program. Many of our graduates are now public health leaders around the world.

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the landscape of health, and we are embarking on a bold new chapter too. The name, National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), is now formally recognised as the ANU academic home for epidemiology, population health research and education, replacing the Research School of Population Health. NCEPH is home to five centres and departments:

  • The Centre for Mental Health Research
  • The National Centre for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wellbeing Research
  • The Centre of Epidemiology for Policy and Practice
  • The Department of Applied Epidemiology
  • Department of Health Economics Wellbeing and Society

Our purpose is to improve and protect population health and health equity for all through partnerships, research, education and implementation. At NCEPH, we embrace existing research, nurture new ideas, forge productive collaborations, and lead in population health.
