Sheffield Alcohol Research Group

Based in the Section of Public Health, under the direction of Professor Petra Meier, we take a lead in ScHARR’s developing research programme on alcohol and other addictions. Our work is influential in informing current debate on alcohol policy and our Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model has provided a key evidence base for debates around minimum unit pricing in the UK and beyond.

ScHARR Section of Public Health also hosts the multi-institutional MRC Alcohol Policy Effectiveness Research Cluster (CAPER).
