New thinking starts here

With so many major challenges still to face, our excellent academic community works with a range of partners and collaborators to make a difference. Together, our work makes scientific advancements, ensures future generations are heathier, and inequalities are tackled.

A place for transformative research

Working to improve care and support for people living with dementia

Health promotion research is the perfect place for me, as it allows me to apply my skills to developing innovative research methods to strengthen the evidence base on community-level interventions to tackle health inequalities. In health promotion, we champion a social model of health and wellbeing, with the focus on ‘upstream’ social determinants such as employment, education, income and the places that we live, work and age, rather than ‘downstream’ determinants such as individual behaviour change.

"I am proud that the research work I do can make a difference to supporting health and wellbeing in the real world."

 My work as a clinical scientist has shown me that there is a real need to have more treatment options for cancer patients. I am hoping that our research can add to the wealth of information that scientists have already unlocked about cancer and improve cancer survival for patients.

"I am interested in helping individuals who are cognitive diverse, such as with dementia, find ways to support their own independence and wellbeing."
