Postgraduate Research Opportunities
Rehabilitation, Ageing and Wellbeing Research Groups
|Centre for Dementia
||To improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers, through high quality, useful research looking at how people with dementia spend their time and what helps them to get quality from life.

||To find and implement rehabilitation techniques that improve the quality of life, in a cost effective way, for people with severe health conditions.
|Health Economics Research at Nottingham
||To facilitate collaboration between different research groups and wider dissemination of health economics research findings.
|Health of Older People
||To conduct internationally significant applied health research that leads to improvement in the health and well-being of older people with frailty, and to produce a sustainable critical mass of researchers in the field.
|Injury Epidemiology and Prevention
||Specialises in the epidemiology and prevention of injuries in all age groups, including preventing falls in older people, preventing injuries in childhood, measuring the long term impact of injuries and evaluating interventions in primary care and community settings.
|Long Term Conditions
||To promote wellbeing and enable people with long term conditions to maximise participation in meaningful social lives.
