Advanced healthcare case studies

At the University of Bradford our research has long been underpinned by the ethos of Making Knowledge Work and this aspiration drives us to create real impact at a local, national and international level.  Our researchers work at the forefront of their fields to address some of the most pressing challenges facing society.
