Translation and policy
Maximising the impact of our research on the lives of children and young people by having a two-way dialogue with policy makers and local authorities.
Our vision is to give all children the best possible start to life. We will ensure that findings from research conducted within the Mohn Centre are translated and applied to improve the lives of children and young people in West London and beyond.
We commit to:
- Engaging with key stakeholders and policymakers about the research conducted within the Mohn Centre
- Providing expert advice to likeminded researchers who are seeking to strengthen their impact pathway
- Supporting researchers to work with communities and stakeholders to translate their research into actionable interventions or effective policy recommendations
- Promoting cross-disciplinary collaborations between academics and clinicians to achieve meaningful and effective translation
- Tracking the impact of research conducted in the Mohn Centre
- Encouraging Centre Members to actively engage in advisory and policy roles
We have ongoing activities which contribute to policy development, including:
- Mohn Centre members provide expert input to the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) (Professor Mireille Toledano and Dr Rachel B Smith), the Committee on Medical Aspects of Radiation in the Environment (COMARE) (Professor Mireille Toledano) and the Committee on Toxicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment (COT) (Professor Mireille Toledano).
- We conduct collaborative research with colleagues in the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), including through the NIHR HPRU in Environmental Exposures and Health and the NIHR HPRU in Chemical and Radiation Threats and Hazards.
- Undertaking systematic reviews to provide updated evidence to policymakers, for example the health effects of air pollution in early life.
