The School of Health Sciences has received significant investment in recent years, culminating in a new £4.2 million building that houses state-of-the-art Biomedical Research laboratories, comprehensive food safety and nutrition research facilities and a new Postgraduate Centre. A new psychology research space was developed in 2009. This includes a specialist room for running focus groups and interviewing and a computing laboratory with up to 6 computers for testing small groups and an observation suite. We have a vibrant postgraduate research community, with more than 60 postgraduate research students, research assistants and postdoctoral researchers.
The Centre for Biomedical Research encompasses investigations into cellular and molecular mechanisms of human diseases, their prevention and associated therapies. The Centre for Food Safety and Nutrition Research has an International reputation for consumer food safety behaviour, food and health relationships and food industry focussed research. Psychology research is well established in the School with specific focus on lifestyle psychology, forensic psychology and educational psychology.
