SPH Research

As an inter-disciplinary centre of research excellence, the School provides opportunity for innovative thinkers and leading national and international scientists from diverse disciplines to work closely with each other and the public to understand and solve population health issues.

Our faculty and students are encouraged and supported to build comprehensive research portfolios, to collaborate with colleagues on a University-wide, provincial, national and international level, and foster research opportunities which work to solve public health issues in communities locally and globally.

Our research is centred on the following core areas:

  • Indigenous peoples' health
  • Human-animal health interface (One Health)
  • Population health interventions
  • Epidemiology
  • Quantitative methods and biostatistics
  • Vaccinology and immunotherapeutics

Why choose the University of Saskatchewan and the School of Public Health for Research?

Vaccinology and Immunotherapeutics (V and I) PhD student Rahwa Osman explains how the University of Saskatchewan has been breaking new ground in research for over 100 years, with six signature research areas, two global institutes, and three of Canada's leading research facilities.

The SPH has research expertise in three of the University's six signature research areas: Aboriginal Peoples, One Health, and Water Security. Students have access to three world-class research centres in the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM), the Canadian Light Source (CLS), and the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization and International Vaccine Centre (VIDO-InterVac).
