Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences
The Centre for Anatomical and Human Sciences brings together research and teaching in anatomical and human sciences. At Hull, we engage in cutting-edge research in musculoskeletal biomechanics with our collaborators in the Centre for Medical Engineering Technology (CMET) and at York we are founding members of the Centre for Human Palaeoecology and Evolutionary Origins, one of the largest groupings in the UK.
Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research
The Centre for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research (CCMR) brings together the expertise of the classic medical disciplines in an integrated and translational research programme.
The particular strengths of CCMR lie in the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure. The HONEI project is examining the relationship of obesity, diabetes and nutrition. The study of coagulation and platelet biology provide a vital linking discipline with these and other areas such as vascular surgery and fibrotic lung disease. The bench to bedside nature of the research is illustrated by the breadth of studies from the molecular pharmacology of novel human cough receptors, to our excellent track record in clinical trials and our leading role in telehealth in chronic disease.
Centre for Education Development
The Hull York Medical School Centre for Education Development (CED) supports the development of high quality evidence-based health professional education.
Centre for Health and Population Sciences
The Centre for Health and Population Sciences brings together expertise to address issues related to population health and healthcare. It includes researchers from the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York, SEDA at the University of Hull and from other groupings, including the Department of Philosophy at the University of Hull, the Centre for Reviews at Dissemination at the University of York and the Centre for Health Economics at the University of York.
Centre for Immunology and Infection
Research within the Centre for Immunology and Infection (CII) ranges from fundamental studies on the pathogenesis of infectious and non-infectious disease through to first-in-man clinical research. Our research is structured into three overlapping areas: clinical and translational research, immunology, and pathogen biology.
Centre for Neuroscience
Our research in neuroscience, especially neuroimaging, is conducted through close links with York Neuroimaging Centre, a research facility for investigating human brain function using non-invasive imaging techniques. Facilities include 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging, whole-head magnetoencephalography, high-density electroencephalography, transcranial magnetic stimulation and high performance parallel computing.
Joint Centre for Cancer Studies (joint between Hull York Medical School and the Faculty of Science and Engineering)
Hull has one of the highest incidences and mortality from cancer in the country. The University of Hull has, therefore decided to set up a Joint Centre for Cancer Studies to facilitate multidisciplinary research in this area.
