Tomorrow's Healthy Adults
Research under this theme, led by newly appointed Co-Director Dr Amanda Ellison, focuses on children and young adults, specifically targeting issues that will determine their long-term health and wellbeing. Healthy adults are a product of all of their yesterdays. This research theme focuses on the issues that predict our health and wellbeing from childhood and throughout our development, whilst also relating to matters concerning how we regain our health following illness or accident. Whether it’s about understanding brain development and the influence of our environment on our growth, further understanding child or adolescent wellbeing, or creating new ways of tackling illnesses, research in this theme aims to both promote good health, prevent ill health and rehabilitate after illness. Through creating bridges between research, policy and service, the academic community can ensure that the right changes are made today, so that all children and adults are healthier tomorrow.
