Currently I direct the UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health Research (NI) and am Deputy Director for the Centre for Public Health in Queens University. The Centre of Excellence, one of five in the UK, is multidisciplinary and spans three Faculties in the University and a range of external stakeholders. Its research scope embraces determinants of public health from molecules to populations, as well as public health interventions.

Its partners, represented in the management Executive and Board, include the DHSSPSNI, the Public Health Agency, the Public Health Institute for Ireland and the Community Development and Health Network.
