Professor Jo Patterson. Associate Head of Research


Our research is entrenched in ‘real world’ clinical issues, making an impact on patients’ lives and the wider population. We promote collaborative working between our academics and clinicians across Nursing and Allied Healthcare Professional groups, inspiring them to deliver high quality applied research and advance practice. We ensure efficient translation into practice through our strong partnerships with senior leaders of regional NHS Trusts. Our applied research programme ensures staff and students see research as ‘everyone’s business’ and an essential component of modern-day healthcare. We endeavour to strengthen research capacity and capability across the professions to deliver the Clinical Academic Nurse and Allied Healthcare Professional leaders of tomorrow.

Professor Jo Patterson, Associate Head of Research at the School is committed to harnessing the talent of staff and students, to collectively produce leading research that is powerful, innovative and impactful. This is underpinned by six key research themes; Child Health; Neuro-rehabilitation; Cancer; Diagnostics; Mental Health and Pedagogy. We host numerous clinical academics, offer post-graduate research training; conduct cross-cutting projects and have an active CPD academic staff training programme.
