The Doctoral Training Facilities

Based on the newly refurbished 4th floor of the Richard Crossman Building, CIH PGRs will find themselves working alongside experienced researchers in this collaborative working environment with dedicated research facilities.

The Research Centre also has a unique healthcare sensing development facility within the HDTi Building of Coventry University Technology Park, which includes a state-of-the-art nano-wearable sensor development room, and a healthcare device development laboratory, and a clinical physiological measurement room.

Our PGR Testimonials

“The culture at CIH is one of collaboration and sharing. The staff and PGRs all come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, everyone is encouraged to get to know each other and learn from each other. A success for one of us is seen as a win for the centre overall, we are encouraged to support and celebrate each other.”
