The Healthy Environments Research Programme is based in the Department of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London.  The Department is recognized as a centre of excellence for research of international standing  and was awarded a grade 5A in the last  Research Assessment Exercise (2001). Since 2001 programme members have won over £1.5 million of collaborative research funding.

The programme has expertise in quantitative and qualitative methods including GIS, multi-level modelling, growth curve modelling, spatial micro-simulation, interviewing, focus-groups, ethnography, demography and bayesian analysis.


None available at present. However we can provide support for those who wish to join the programme by securing collaborative funding through external sources such as personal research fellowships and grants. Please feel free to contact HERP members to discuss possible collaborations. 


A number of PhD Studentships are currently available within the Department. Please see the following advertisement for more details. If you would like to discuss a health-related project with HERP members please contact us via email and we can discuss your application. Closing date:  March 14th 2008.
