Research in the Faculty of Health

Research in York’s Faculty of Health reflects our aspiration to building a healthy world for all. Our focus on health first, then care when needed, leads us to ask different questions and push beyond traditional boundaries to make a difference in people’s lives through our research.

Our faculty members come from five units – Global HealthHealth Policy & ManagementKinesiology & Health ScienceNursingPsychology  – and our research encompasses a diverse range of approaches and disciplines. Our work spans the full spectrum from individuals to communities; from molecules to global health systems. Research in our Faculty is a microcosm of research across our entire university.

Applying academic research to real-world problems is a priority for many of our researchers. Our connections with community, government, healthcare and industry partners help us push beyond traditional boundaries, to incorporate interdisciplinary approaches, and to respond to the issues and challenges that shape our world.
