Dean's Welcome Message

A very warm welcome to the Faculty of Health and Medicine

We are a relatively new feature in the landscape of Lancaster University, established formally in Summer 2008 by bringing together staff and students in biomedical and life sciences, health research, and medicine.

Our academic interests span several disciplines including bioscience, medicine, sociology, psychology, statistics, geography and management and we value the interdisciplinarity that characterises the Faculty.

We enjoy excellent relations with partners in the NHS and other organisations, and particularly value those aspects of our work which translate findings into improvements in personal and community health and well-being. We hope you find what you are looking for here.

We welcome interest from prospective students and their advisers, and from potential collaborators; please mail us at if we can help further.

Professor Tony Gatrell
Dean of Faculty
