Health, Science and Technology

The FSSL Health, Science and Technology grouping brings together a critical mass of scholars from across the faculty to explore the most pressing challenges at the interfaces of the health and social sciences. Our members are committed to undertaking innovative and inter-disciplinary research at both national and global levels.

Our aim is to contribute to an enhanced understanding of the human and social impacts of health and science interventions. Researchers in HST employ a range of theoretical and methodological approaches

The role of HST is provide opportunities and support for scholars from across the faculty and foster research relationships with academics and research partners outside of FSSL

HST brings together academics from the five schools within FSSL.
