The Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions for Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer)
The Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions for Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer) is one of five new UKCRC Public Health Research Centres of Excellence. DECIPHer will bring together leading experts from a range of disciplines to tackle public health issues such as diet and nutrition, physical activity; and alcohol, tobacco and drugs, with a particular focus on developing and evaluating multi-level interventions that will have an impact on the health and well-being of children and young people. The Centre will engage strongly with policy, practice and public user communities to translate the research results into practical outcomes.
The Centre will be led by Professor Laurence Moore, Director of the Cardiff Institute of Society, Health and Ethics (CISHE) in a strategic partnership with colleagues at the University of Bristol, led by Professor Rona Campbell of the University of Bristol Department of Social Medicine, and Swansea University, led by Professor Ronan Lyons of the Swansea University School of Medicine.
The Centre is funded by:
The British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Wellcome Trust, Economic and Social Research Council, Medical Research Council, Welsh Assembly Government, Clinical Research Collaboration Cymru (CRC Cymru), UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC).
