GCU’s vibrant and state-of-the-art ‘Centre for Living’ draws together expertise in multiple health and social research disciplines to advance public health.

The Centre supports world-leading translational research, international learning and teaching strategies, with links to national and global health and care initiatives, and alignment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

At its core, the Centre strives to deliver research impact beyond academia, by engaging with individuals, communities and organisations to effect change and benefit policy, practice, and respond to key health challenges and inequalities.

Centre researchers from GCU’s School of Health and Life Sciences and the co-hosted Chief Scientist Office-funded Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Research Unit (NMAHPRU) collaborate closely with GCU health services, social work and policy colleagues ─ and with strategic partners including NHS Lanarkshire, Health Protection Scotland, Glasgow Biomedicine, Canon, Social Work Scotland and the Hampden Sports Clinic.
