Centre for Medical Humanities

Programme of Research

In 2009 the Centre for Medical Humanities (CMH) won one of only two Wellcome Trust Strategic Awards in Medical Humanities (£1.9 million, 2009-14), for the study of ‘Medicine and Human Flourishing’. This award supported the development of three further interdisciplinary projects on hearing voices , breathlessness, and rest funded by the Wellcome Trust. This funding has also enabled us to establish a vibrant network of 100 Affiliates, postgraduate and early career researchers across all three Faculties, an AHRC-funded early career training programme, and a multi award-winning blog. Our research on human experience sets an agenda for critical and critically engaged medical humanities scholarship. For more information, please see our research projects.
