Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health

The Centre forms part of the Centre for Epidemiology (CfE) and its origins date back to around 1945 when the University of Manchester established a Chair and a corresponding academic unit in Occupational Medicine. It is therefore the oldest, as well as possibly the largest, such academic centre in existence in the UK.

For further information, see: History of the group

The Centre and its associates engage in research and in postgraduate education. The centre mainly investigates the epidemiology of occupational and environmental ill health including infectious disease, trauma and accidents.
