DECIPHer: Centre for the Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions for Public Health Improvement
DECIPHer is a UKCRC Public Health Research Centre of Excellence.
DECIPHer brings 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 wellbeing of children and young people. The Centre engages strongly with policy, practice and public user communities as our stakeholders, to translate the research results into practical outcomes.
DECIPHer is led by Professor Laurence Moore, Cardiff University, in a strategic partnership with colleagues at the University of Bristol, led by Professor Rona Campbell, and Swansea University, led by Professor Ronan Lyons.
