Institute of Health and Wellbeing
The Institute of Health and Wellbeing Research benefits from strong partnerships with other organisations across academia, healthcare, business and public society.
Our research and evaluation services respond to key health and wellbeing challenges, and lead to innovation across many disciplines of human performance. Our aim is to make a meaningful contribution to the local, national, and where possible international community.
We also aim to provide a supportive environment for our postgraduate research students, and we particularly welcome applications for PhD study within our areas of expertise.
The vision of the Institute is to enhance wellbeing, reduce ill-health and enable a high quality of life to be experienced by all.
The Institute’s mission is to provide a supportive, multi-disciplinary environment to bring together diverse partnerships to deliver applied research, knowledge exchange and innovation in health and wellbeing across the human lifespan.
