Population and Behavioural Science

Population and Behavioural Science research in the School of Medicine is transforming health promotion, prevention, early detection, management of illness and communication locally, nationally and globally.  We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in health data science, epidemiology, trials and the design, delivery, and evaluation of theory-based psychological interventions.   We work in the primary care and community health domains, with specific interests in addiction medicine, child and adolescent health, long-term conditions and health behaviours. We are committed to public and patient involvement throughout our research and host the Fife Community Advisory Council who help guide our research. We employ patient co-design to improve both the delivery and understanding of our research.
