The Centre brings together over 170 academic staff from across the arts and humanities, social sciences, medicine and healthcare studies.
All staff in the Centre are research active and have good rates of attracting research funding.
We strongly believe in research-led teaching, and so leading researchers in the Centre lecture on their specialist subjects and their cutting edge expertise feeds into our learning and teaching.
