Making research an integral part of novel health, industry and academic collaborations
Sitting at the centre of the University of Surrey’s state-of-the-art health research facilities, the HTA facilitates access to a broad range of academic expertise from across the University, including in technology and health related research and the design and delivery of evaluation studies in support of evidence-based decision making.
The faculty’s mission is to sustainably improve the health and wellbeing of humans and animals, and their environments through new knowledge and its application to the design, development and delivery of responsible innovation and impact.
Research themes include: Chronobiology and sleep; Digital health and data science; Healthy ageing and supporting long-term conditions; Infection and immunity; and Nutrition and food security.
The school’s activity fully embraces the ‘bench-to-bedside’ concept and extends to the ‘second translation’ or bedside-to-clinical-practice domain.
The school’s vision is to be a world-class centre for healthcare research where dynamic academics conduct ground-breaking research that addresses global health care priorities and generates evidence to underpin effective, compassionate and integrated health care.
The centre is an internationally recognised leader in audio-visual machine perception research, leading both fundamental and scientific advances and practical application of AI and machine perception for the benefit of society and the economy. Its healthcare research focuses on medical imaging technologies for cancer detection and machine learning in personalised care for better living and healthy ageing.
The newly-formed pan-University AI Institute offers a unique environment to help shape the future of AI.
