Health is not simply an absence of illness, but a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing.
Good health and wellbeing requires a multidisciplinary consideration of whole systems, from the biological cell to individual and societal health and wellbeing, examining social, physical and mental health.
These are all areas in which we excel at Strathclyde.
Lifelong health & wellbeing
We have expertise in lifelong health and wellbeing spanning life transitions from conception, to childhood through to education and employment, marginalised groups and ageing independently.
Our expertise includes:
- fundamental biological research of healthy systems and diseases as well as medicines discovery and their clinical use
- science and engineering research into devices and data that can support and enable individual care and improve whole care systems
- social science and management research into behaviour change and system change
- research into health and care policy, practice and impact
We have a strong reputation for working in a holistic way
Using innovation to deliver new models of care
We take a whole systems approach to deliver evidence based and scalable solutions and strategies to promote and support healthy individuals and a healthy population.
We have a strong reputation for working in a holistic way, with multidisciplinary teams from all four faculties engaging with patients, citizens, industry, and health and social care partners, to deliver real health and social care services and solutions, and to deliver innovations that support new models and methods of care.
We work hard to translate our research into practice and policy that has sustainable impact for real people and care providers.
We have the Technology & Innovation Centre on our doorstep, which we use as a living lab to engage with key stakeholders and re-imagine how health and social care data, medicines, and services can be used to provide more realistic medicines and devices to support people in care environments and in self-managing their health and wellbeing.
