The School of Health and Rehabilitation has a long established research programme in physiotherapy related areas.  Since 2004 the research has been based in multidisciplinary Research institutes.  The School has close links with the Primary Care Science Research Institute and the Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, both based in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and also with the Institute for Life Course Studies, based in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

The aims of the Research Institutes within the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences are:

  • To provide a forum for high quality research at Keele and within the University’s partner NHS organisations in well focused themes to enable us to compete at national and international level.
  • To ensure that Keele’s tradition and reputation for fostering multi-disciplinary research was continued and enhanced at the highest level.
