Research


Our research spans both public health and health services and their twentieth and twenty first century history. Other research focuses on substance use and on historical demography.

New research includes a Wellcome new investigator award on the role of the public in public health; a Wellcome library fellowship on the role of the Medical Officer of Health in London in the inter war years, using on-line  MoH reports; and the European and international dimensions of addiction as a concept since the mid nineteenth century.
