Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing

Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing

The Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing, established in 2001, conducts and facilitates interdisciplinary research on health and wellbeing across all three University Faculties. We support a community of over 250 Fellows, 14 Research Centres and 9 Special Interest Groups across almost all of the University's departments and schools.

Vision

"The Beginning, Middle and End"

  • Understanding a problem.
  • Understanding how it manifests itself in the individual and in the community.
  • Understanding ways in which we can mediate the problem effecting change via evidenced interventions.

Strategy

The first way we do this by identifying themes across Durham University in an interdisciplinary fashion, encouraging dialogue and interaction in discussion, evidence gathering, evaluation and interpretation.

The second way is to target a societal question or problem and collate and gather Durham University research expertise to address the issue from an interdisciplinary approach.
