More Information


Bringing together researchers from all three institutions, the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research will host a centre for child health, including the ground-breaking ‘Born in Bradford’ and ‘Born in Bradford’s Better Start’ cohorts. It will also host the Centre for Ageing, one of the UK’s most successful research groups in applied health research for older people, and the National Institute for Health Research’s National Patient Safety Centre.

By combining the expertise of health researchers with clinicians who have daily contact with patients, the centre will ensure that its findings are put rapidly into practice – resulting in better health and social care for those who need it most.
