Breakthrough Health & Wellbeing

health and wellbeing research

UCLan has a strong and broad-based engagement with health and wellbeing research, working in conjunction with the healthcare industry, service users and the wider community, and in a strong cross-disciplinary environment.

Our research encompasses:

  • translating health and psychological evidence into high quality clinical and psychological care and treatment and improved quality of life
  • cutting-edge clinical research on drug design and delivery and neuronal and tissue dysfunction
  • user-led applied research to develop and test healthcare technologies, instruments, devices and equipment
  • influencing policy-making and planning to improve practice and reduce inequality

The Health Research Methodology and Implementation (HeRMI) hub provides methodological expertise to support the health and wellbeing research themes. 

UCLan also hosts the Lancashire Clinical Trials Unit which provides the dedicated expertise and support needed for the development, set-up and management, analysis and publication of clinical trials for researchers both nationally and internationally.
