People

Meet the people behind the Institute

The Institute for Health Research supports a culture of research and the building of capacity so membership is inclusive and open to all members of staff and students engaged in, or with an interest in health research in the broadest sense. Accessibility to all events, interest group meetings and website content is not restricted and will be open to all LJMU staff and postgraduate students, and potentially external colleagues.

Coordinators

Coordinators lead the activities of each interest group will then report progress and successes to the advisory board on an annual basis.
