At York, researchers collaborate across the University's seven interdisciplinary research themes to address the great scientific, social and environmental challenges of our times.
The Department of Health Sciences has particularly strong research in the following three themes: Health and Wellbeing, Justice and Equality, and Risk, Evidence and Decision Making.
The Department's own Professor Karen Bloor is the research champion for Health and Wellbeing.
Health and Wellbeing
Health and Wellbeing is a unifying research theme across all of our work. We demonstrate our commitment to this theme through our strong collaborations with Hull York Medical School, the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination and the Centre for Health Economics.
Our ability to attract funding and deliver quality research and impact is enhanced through our strong NHS and Social Care partnerships.
Justice and Equality
Kate Pickett, Professor of Epidemiology, is the co-founder and trustee of The Equality Trust.
Risk, Evidence and Decision Making
Through our York Trials Unit we test the effectiveness and efficiency of existing and potential health interventions. Our research has significant impact on healthcare, education and crime and justice.
