The group consists of nine core academics who may be returned in, ten Post-docs or other Research Assistants and eight PhD students.  The Child and Adolescent Health group has been re-designated recently as the World health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre for International Child & Adolescent Health Policy by the WHO Copenhagen/Geneva Offices for further four years.  There is now an increased focus on health informatics as well as clinical trials and other types of interventional research and an interschool digital health science initiative.  Members of the group also make significant contributions to undergraduate and taught postgraduate teaching.
