Health and Social Research Centre (HSRC)
Located within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, but with a wide cross-section of researchers as its affiliates, the new Health and Social Research Centre provides a focal point for health research in the University. The HSRC emphasises research into social and situational determinants of health, and brings together researchers from across the social sciences and humanities, and the physical sciences. Researchers work in interdisciplinary teams to generate innovations in health and social research, and to support allied health and community development professionals engaged in the delivery of health and social services. Through the delivery of research, the centre maintains relationships and links with external funding bodies, health providers and communities.
