The Health Survey for England (HSE) comprises a series of annual surveys beginning in 1991. The series is part of an overall programme of surveys commissioned by the DH and designed to provide regular information on various aspects of the nation's health. This is an expensive and highly under utilised resource and has applicability to Public Health, Epidemiology and Social Science. The presentation will explore ways in which HSE could be more utilised as well as touching upon how complex clustering could aid in the information extracted from the survey.

Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Awards (DHPA) is a
This year EPSRC and the DIUS decided that there would only be paired awards for DHPA this year. Paired awards from core private sector sponsors are normally strongly associated with particular research organisations, departments or supervisors. They are therefore seeking contacts in companies that they could approach to set up paired awards. If any suggested contact made by staff in UoM leads to a company participating, then that is likely to be a company that we have good research links with and therefore we will stand a good chance of getting a studentship. Please contact Joanna.Heaps for more information.
