The Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing is Durham’s flagship interdisciplinary Institute tasked with delivering the Health@Durham Strategy. Established in 2001, we foster research relating to human health and wellbeing in both developed and developing countries from the individual to global scale.
We do this through our Challenge Academies. Each has been carefully built to address local and global unmet need in health-related issues. Closely aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals, these Academies have the interdisciplinary approach unique to Durham University built in. In this way, each Academy can address major problems in health and wellbeing, but also be responsive to new challenges as they arise.
We help our Challenge Academies grow, fostering networking, identifying and assisting with funding opportunities, expanding their internationalisation and ensuring impact through clinical, industry or policy collaboration. This approach is central to our core ethos where our Academies address the beginning (identifying the correct question), the middle (understanding who the problem affects and how) and the end (how we can use this knowledge to create purpose built solutions that don’t just help some of the people some of the time but all of the people, all of the time).
The North East Postgraduate (NEPG) Conference 2022 will be held on Friday 28th October 2022 at the Civic Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne with both in-person and virtual attendance options.
