Pioneers in Public Health

The University of Liverpool’s renowned School of Medicine and its Department of Public Health and Policy have a worldwide reputation for promoting medical science and public health through practice and research. The School has been at the forefront of medical science for over 150 years.

This proud history in research includes Nobel Laureate Sir Ronald Ross, who was Professor and Chair of Tropical Medicine at the University from 1899-1912. He received the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1902 for his discovery of the life cycle of the malarial parasite.

Today, the Department of Public Health, with its multidisciplinary team, has a strong commitment to addressing inequalities in health and health care. This theme underpins all of the Department’s work in research, teaching and promoting public health.
