The Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research
Improving the health and wellbeing of Bradford, Leeds
and the Yorkshire region
About the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research
The Wolfson Centre brings together health professionals and researchers to develop quicker ways of translating research into benefits for patients.
We help turn cutting-edge science into everyday practice to improve the health and wellbeing of people in our communities in Bradford and the wider Yorkshire region.
Our research themes
The centre’s key aims are to improve the health and wellbeing of children and the elderly, and the safety of patients in hospitals and clinics.
By combining the expertise of health researchers with clinicians who have daily contact with patients, we aim to ensure that our findings are put rapidly into practice – resulting in better health and social care for those who need it most, right here in Yorkshire.
