Research Group has conducted several studies assessing public health in areas of importance to the UAE to help identify gaps in current knowledge and priorities in future research. Such as :
Currently, the group is running interdisciplinary research that aims to promote the health and well-being of different population groups. The HPRG research projects have been supported by several internal and external grants

In addition to research activities, the HPRG is involved in many community activities
Community engagement activities: Our HPRG team conducted several community-engagement activities that focused on public health interventions promoting physical activities, healthy lifestyle behaviours, oral health hygiene, and healthy eating habits targeting school children, the general public, university students, and older adults.
Many other activities will be done in collaboration with key community associations and departments. Moreover, as per the Chancellor and VCRG recommendations, the HPRG will plan to study the impact/outcomes of community research activities using evidence-based approaches in our community.
