Our vision is to be a world-class centre for healthcare research where dynamic academics conduct ground-breaking research that addresses global health care priorities and generates evidence to underpin effective, compassionate and integrated health care.

About our research

We are passionate about: 

  • Conducting the right research in the right way, by involving patients, family members and other stakeholders in the design and conduct of our research.
  • Collaborating closely with the NHS and other healthcare organisations and agencies nationally and internationally.
  • Developing researchers for the future.
  • Enhancing health outcomes for patients, families and societies. 

Our research is organised into cross-cutting research themes and research clusters which together build a knowledge base that informs a matrix approach to our work at the School of Health Sciences. 

Research clusters

Our research clusters consist of groups of researchers who have an interest in a disease, a group of diseases or research into a particular client such as maternal health and child.
