We are a network of social scientists based at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine conducting health-related research. Committed to drawing on a wide range of social theory to inform our work, we run reading groups, seminars and other kinds of workshops to foster an intellectually creative environment.

There are now more than 100 social scientists working at the School, in diverse disciplines including sociology, anthropology, history, geography, and political sciences. All aim to understand health related practices – of individuals, researchers, communities, populations, institutions, and interventions in context, exploring how the operations of public health and research construct health and evidence in different ways.
