Swansea University has been at the cutting edge of research and innovation since 1920. Swansea has a long history of working with business and industry but today the research has a much wider impact across the health, wealth, culture, and well-being of society. Swansea offers a compelling balance of excellent teaching and research, matched by an enviable quality of life on two beachfront campuses.
Swansea University is one of the most exciting, dynamic and leading health data science centres in the UK and internationally. Population Health Data Science is based in the purposely designed Data Science Building, funded by the MRC, ESRC and Welsh Government. It houses more than 130 data scientists from many different disciplines working in a number of research centres of excellence including: The Secure Anonymised Information Linkage (SAIL) Databank; Health Data Research UK’s (HDR UK) Wales and Northern Ireland site; Administrative Data Research UK, Wales; MQ Adolescent Data Platform; MytHICAL- Mental Health Informatics in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults; CLIMB: Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics; Dementias Research UK Data Portal; and the National Centre for Population Health and Wellbeing Research.
