Health Sciences Research Centre
The Health Sciences Research Centre (HSRC) is a multidisciplinary group, focused on improving health and wellbeing through innovation, research, and partnerships. The centre has a strong focus on technological advancement, often working closely with NHS and industry partners to develop and test new treatments and to create innovative healthcare products and services. We also consult closely with users and patient groups to develop health care solutions focused on the needs of patients or community groups.
HSRC also plays a key role in training the workforce of the future and houses the EPSRC centre for doctoral training in prosthetics and orthotics. Membership comes from a wide range of backgrounds, including nursing, physics, physiotherapy, psychology, public health, social work, and sport. Together the group continues to bring new insights to contemporary health, wellbeing, and social care challenges across all age groups, from those affecting young children to those associated with older age.
