Our Institute provides a vibrant academic community. Our researchers come from a range of disciplines, specialisms and clinical backgrounds. We provide a supportive environment for our researchers and encourage collaboration across disciplinary and sectoral boundaries.
The Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research (PIHR) brings together academics from a wide range of disciplines in the Faculty of Health (Biomedical Sciences, Dentistry, Health Professions, Health Services Research, Medicine, Nursing, Primary Care, Psychology, Public health and Social Care), together with researchers in the University’s Faculties of Science and Engineering and Arts, Humanities and Business, and our partners in the public, private and third sectors, nationally and internationally.
Our mission is to promote an interdisciplinary, inclusive enterprise with a real commitment to working across boundaries in order to meet the needs of the people of the South West and other rural, coastal, and deprived communities worldwide.
