Research at UEA Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

At UEA our research portfolio for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is divided into three interlinked research areas:

  • Metabolic Health encompasses research in cardiovascular, cancer, musculoskeletal, gastroenterology and microbiology.
  • Lifespan Health includes Health and Care Innovation (behavioural change, life course i.e. early through later life, rehabilitation, sleep, neurodegeneration), Mental Health, Nutrition, and the Norwich Institute for Health Ageing.
  • Population Health includes Epidemiology (Norwich Epidemiology Centre), Health Economics, Statistics, and the Norwich Clinical Trials Unit.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is comprised of two schools: Norwich Medical School and the School of Health Sciences.

For our research, we combine expertise from both schools and across the wider university to provide ground-breaking research opportunities and innovation.

Research at UEA Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

Our programmes include the standard 3-year PhD programme, PhD by publication and Masters by Research. We are a top tier, research-led university and are committed to making a substantial impact on the global challenges facing society. Our postgraduate researchers have opportunities to work at the heart of active research teams, challenging boundaries and making real advances.

Working closely with an academic supervisor gives you the support to carry out your own independent research. We have a wealth of remarkable academics, but how do you know which team will be right for you? Look at our faculty and school websites for areas of interest then investigate our academics and their publications to see if this is the right fit for you. We recommend that you identify at least one member of staff at UEA who would be an ideal supervisor and that you contact them, to express your interest and discuss your research proposal.
