Research in the School of Life & Health Sciences focuses on significantly extending our understanding of the processes of health and disease and the personal and social context in which they occur. Our goal is to apply the knowledge gained to clinical products, policy and practice.
Questions we’re addressing include:
What are the basic neural processes involved in cognitive function and sensory perception? How are these maintained over a person’s life, and how are they changed by disease?
How might an improved understanding of the behaviours that influence the uptake and effectiveness of treatment be applied to the cost effective prevention and management of disease?
How can our understanding of biological processes prevent disease and age-related decline, improve diagnosis, and lead to the development of better medicines?
