Health and Wellbeing research

Research Theme Champion: Professor Frances Bunn (School of Health and Social Work)

Poor health impacts on the quality of life of those directly affected as patients but also on families, health systems and societies. Achieving and maintaining physical, mental, emotional and social health and wellbeing for all members of society is a major world-wide challenge.

Our research is focused on improving mental and physical health and wellbeing across the human life span. We can draw on a wide range of disciplines including health science, biomedicine, biomedical engineering and medical humanities, to produce research that makes a difference to people’s lives and that informs health care policies, patient care and therapies.
