Revisiting rural-urban migrant men in China

This research studies a younger generation (i.e. post 1990s) of rural-urban migrant men (aged 16-24) and their gendered identity formation. Within the context of rapid globally inflected socio-cultural transformations, the project seeks to understand the ways in which young migrant men’s personal relationships and emerging subjectivities unfold in the following three arenas: family life; workplace; and social and leisure activities. The resulting publication can be viewed here.

REGenableMED Project

REGenableMED is an ESRC-funded project examining the dynamics of innovation within the field of regenerative medicine. Using a mixed-methods social science approach, the project undertook a detailed analysis of the interplay between business models, measures of clinical utility, patterns of regulatory oversight and clinical workflows within healthcare settings. This ESRC-funded project completed its three year study in July 2017 and has provided advice and analysis to different UK and international bodies, and its results will continue to do so in the future. The project is sumarised in the final project presentation.

Evaluating nuanced practices for initiating decision making in neurology clinics

Following on from this research team's previous project which identified the key communication practices that neurologists are using to offer patients choice. Following on from this, this research project will analyse offering choice in comparison to recommendation; investigating the consequences of selecting one practice over another. This project resulted in fexible guidance on what ‘works’ best for patients and clinicians, which can be viewed in the project's research summary.
