NIHR School for Public Health Research

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) School for Public Health Research (SPHR) is a collaboration between eight leading academic centres with excellence in applied public health research in England.

The School aims to build the evidence base for effective public health practice. Our research looks at what works practically, can be applied across the country and better meets the needs of policymakers, practitioners and the public.

Professor Jon Nicholl, Dean of ScHARR, is the inaugural Director of the School.
