The MRC Epidemiology Unit hosts the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR), one of five UKCRC funded Centres of Excellence in Public Health Research. CEDAR, which also includes researchers from the MRC Biostatistics Unit and the University of East Anglia, has enabled the Unit to develop its work on the wider determinants of dietary and physical activity related behaviours.

CEDAR is building research capacity, broadening understanding of the factors that influence what we eat and how much we move around, and is developing and evaluating population level interventions. This is enabling it to work with practice and policy to influence strategies to support sustainable healthy behaviours at the population level.
