Our PhD students are already working with global medical technology giant Smith & Nephew, which combines the brightest minds with the finest R&D facilities to drive research into pioneering approaches to advanced wound care.
Many of our PhD students working in health benefit from access to the vibrant research community at the heart of our £28-million Allam Medical Building and health campus, which was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in November.
The Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre has brought together a group of high-profile world-class researchers here to support those people with progressive, life-limiting illness – to help them to live well through the control of their symptoms, support for psychological, social and spiritual concerns, and care for their families and friends.
The University of Hull is also helping to ensure pregnant women and new parents get the best care possible when it comes to their mental health. Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences and Professor of Midwifery, Julie Jomeen, has led researchers and specialist nurses from the region’s NHS trust to provide a better service for women and their families.
Building on the University’s strong track record of research into how cancer is understood, diagnosed and treated, Yorkshire Cancer research awarded the University of Hull and Hull York Medical School a grant of over £5 million to tackle cancer inequalities in the region.
Our world-class health research was showcased at this year’s British Science Festival, hosted at the University of Hull, celebrating new perspectives and innovation in the world of science.
Jordon Sandland, Bioorganic Chemistry PhD student at the University of Hull, said:
“I chose to study my PhD at Hull because of the chemistry facilities at the University and the PET (Positron Emission Tomography) research centre – which uses medical imaging technology for research and early diagnosis and is the only of its kind in the UK.
“Although the University is already well known for its research into LCD technology (which is responsible for the liquid crystal displays on our mobile phones), the University is also pushing the frontiers of cancer therapy and imaging to help improve diagnosis and treatment for patients.”
