The Lancashire Research Institute For Global HEalth and Wellbeing (LIFE) brings together researchers from the faculties of Health and Wellbeing and Clinical and Biomedical Sciences at UCLan to enhance and enable globally relevant health and wellbeing research.
In line with UCLan’s research and internationalisation strategies, the Institute will foster new, and enhance existing, global health research collaborations in order to extend reach, reputation and impact. It will achieve this through a range of activities including supporting researchers to develop high quality funding applications, to deliver research programmes and encouraging researchers at all stages of their careers to engage at a global level. The Institute, led by Professor Dame Caroline Watkins began in Jan 2018, with the support of key staff Professor StJohn Crean, Professor Nigel Harrison, Rachel Georgiou and Professor Cathy Jackson .
