CLiMB: The Centre for Lifestyle Medicine and Behaviour

The aim of the Centre for Lifestyle Medicine and Behaviour (CLiMB) is to identify and evaluate innovative health behaviour interventions and policies to prevent and treat chronic diseases.

The overall ambition of the Centre is to help the public to live long, healthy and happy lives.

The Centre works with researchers nationally and internationally, members of the public, public health organisations, health charities, the voluntary sector, commercial partners and the NHS. With our partners we aim to provide policymakers and organisations with robust research evidence to improve population health and well-being.

CLiMB conducts research in the following areas:

  • Prevention and treatment of chronic diseases
  • Brief interventions and making every contact count
  • Technology and the measurement of health
  • Healthy lifestyles in children
  • Health communication and food labelling
  • Women’s health and lifestyle behaviours
  • Collaboration
