Research in the Institute focuses on chronic diseases and on the prevention of disease through primary care (general practice) and through changes to personal lifestyle or to the environment. Expanding areas of work include studies of eye conditions and congenital abnormalities and the evaluation of health care, particularly in relation to mental health.
Research carried out by the Institute in 2014 on the effects of parental smoking on the respiratory health of children resulted in a Westminster Bill to ban smoking in cars when children are present. The law was changed a year later.
