Our research in the area of Allied Health Professions (Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy) was a big winner in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework - the six-yearly national review of research quality in higher education. An expert panel rated 72 per cent of our allied health research as world-leading/internationally-excellent overall.
Our research into public health links in with UEL's internationally-renowned Institute for Connected Communities (ICC), which regularly carries out research across the UK and also overseas. The ICC has been heavily involved in more than 50 significant projects since its foundation in 2006. UEL staff and students have researched into and developed programmes to improve health and wellbeing, particularly in some of London's poorest communities.
We're making a major contribution to evidence-based rehabilitation through our work with the Human Motor Performance Research Group (HMPG). This brings together a multi-disciplinary team of clinical scientists with backgrounds in physiotherapy, podiatry, neuroscience, biomechanical research, sports science and sociology.
