TARG researchers receive Elizabeth Blackwell Institute funding
20 June 2019
TARG awarded funds to focus research into the ethical, legal and social dimensions of health and the biosciences, aiming to understand causal pathways to mental wellbeing.
TARG post-doctoral researchers, Dr Robyn Wootton and Dr Hannah Sallis, have been awarded funding from the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute’s (EBI) Bioethics, Biolaw and Biosociety Research Strand. This strand focuses on research into the ethical, legal and social dimensions of health and the biosciences and aims to facilitate inter-disciplinary research. This funding scheme specifically funds multidisciplinary teams of three early career researchers. Along with Dr Wootton and Dr Sallis, the team is completed by Dr Adele Wang, a post-doctoral researcher based in the School of Economics.
The project forms part of a larger funding bid aiming to understand causal pathways to mental wellbeing and will use a number of complementary, novel techniques to unpick the complex association between health behaviours and wellbeing. To start, Dr Wootton, Dr Sallis and Dr Wang will use the funds awarded by the EBI to arrange and host a networking meeting for a range of stakeholders and collaborators involved in the funding bid.
