Population and Public Health Discovery Advisory Group

This advisory group shortlists candidates for Wellcome Career Development Awards and Wellcome Discovery Awards.

Its remit covers applications that aim to understand the causes and consequences of health, wellbeing and disease in populations. It includes a range of disciplines such as (but not limited to) epidemiology, social science, health economics and data science.

Examples include:

  • research employing a variety of study designs, including cross-sectional and longitudinal data collection and analysis
  • methodological developments in population health, including data linkage, statistical methods and conceptual frameworks
  • research to inform health systems and health policy.


We will publish membership details in the autumn.
