Pioneering research collaborations

We aim to solve real-life issues and make a tangible difference to society, to the health profession and to inform health policy with cutting edge research that looks to tackle the very latest healthcare challenges.

From exploring the mechanics of everyday and extreme health conditions through to the design and implementation of health based technologies, our researchers work closely with local, national and global organisation. They use their expertise and innovations to address emerging health related issues.

We have many well recognised thought leaders and innovators within their research centres, like Dr Sally Pezaro who received a prestigious Royal College of Midwives (RCM) Fellowship for her inspiring midwifery research or Professor Helen Maddock who works closely with the pharmaceutical industry to analyse the adverse effects of drugs on the cardiovascular system.

From improving the well-being of healthcare professionals, developing the use of machine learning methods to predict the effects of COVID-19 on each diagnosed patient, to exploring the potential for ‘smart spectacles’ to help the recovery of patients with facial palsy, and improving infant health in refugee camps, our projects are making an impact worldwide.
