This domain is a focus point for applied health research across The University of Manchester. Our research is concentrated in several Divisions within the School of Health Sciences, but there is also significant expertise across the whole Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health.
We also have a presence in the other faculties at the University, meaning that there is excellence in many areas. Consolidation of this broad-based research via the domain is a great opportunity, both externally and internally.
The University has major strengths in applied health research, as proven by our membership of the NIHR Schools for Primary Care and Social Care, our hosting of two DHSC Policy Research Units, and our leadership of the GM CLAHRC and the NIHR Patient Safety Translation Research Centre. We also possess world-leading experts in methodology, including evidence synthesis, qualitative research, biostatistics, health economics, epidemiology and clinical trials.
