The Discovery Research Platform for Medical Humanities

You can find out more about our work to transform the way we do health research by visiting our new site below.

What is the Platform? We bring together humanities and social science researchers, people with lived experience and people working in different sectors to co-develop new and experimental approaches to tackling health challenges. Our Platform will create spaces for experimentation and intellectual risk-taking, support networks globally, and transform the capacity of the medical humanities field.

A structure of interconnected platforms and floating islands on a stormy sea. Each platform features items that reflect the Labs and Sites of the Platform.
