Haemostasis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology Unit (HTVBU)

Description
Information on the Haemostasis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology Unit (HTVBU) Group, led by Professor Greg Lip, Cardiovascular Sciences, School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, The University of Birmingham.

Health and Population Sciences research

Description
The research domain of Health & Population Sciences (HaPS) encompasses expertise in the fields of primary care, public health and epidemiology, clinical trials, health technology assessments, health economics, occupational and environmental medicine, biostatistics, health services research, health care development, nursing and physiotherapy. Our research involves cross-disciplinary collaborations within the university and beyond, utilising some of the brightest minds and latest scientific technology in our quest to push back the boundaries of research in this field.

Health and Social Wellbeing Research Group

Description
Health and social wellbeing research group. Institute of Applied Social Studies. School of Social Policy.

Health Psychology Research Group - School of Psychology

Description
Research on Health Psychology in the School of Psychology is concerned with understanding people's emotions, cognitions and behaviours in maintaining health, adapting to ill-health and coping with or managing long-term conditions.

Health Technology Assessment (HTA) & Economic Modelling

Description
This cross school theme has a strong track record in evidence synthesis and economic modelling. It combines applied and methodological work to support decision making in healthcare, using techniques to minimise bias and make explicit uncertainties. Applied work has conducted NICE technology assessments, contributed to NIHR funded research and identified emerging public health topics.

Healthcare Evaluation and Methodology

Description
The scope of groups within this theme stretch from providing methodological infrastructure and support for applied health research projects based in Health and Population Sciences, or elsewhere in the College; through provision of health evaluation services; to development and evaluation of the scientific methodologies for development and evaluation of methodology.

HEAT - Helicobacter eradication to prevent ulcer bleeding in aspirin users: a large simple randomised controlled trial

Description
Introduction to the Helicobacter eradication to prevent ulcer bleeding in aspirin users: a large simple randomised controlled trial (HEAT) within the Primary Care Trials Unit at the University of Birmingham.

Heath care workers' attitudes to working during pandemic influenza

Description
'Healthcare worker's attitudes towards working during pandemic influenza' is a project designed to explore those factors that might incline/ disincline healthcare workers to work during an outbreak of pandemic influenza. It is anticipated that the results of this project will help UK contingency planning, at both a national and local level, should a flu pandemic occur. Pandemic influenza is one of the most urgent global public health threats. World Health Organization (WHO) models anticipate that pandemic influenza will start out as an avian influenza virus that mutates into a form transmissible between human beings. Once established among people in this form anywhere in the world, its spread to the rest of the globe will be speedy, even if current monitoring arrangements provide some early warning.

Hepatitis C and Related Viruses

Description
Our research interests are focused on the molecular biology of HCV, with particular emphasis on the role of the cell surface receptors in the viral life cycle, both in terms of the primary interaction of the virus with the host and with reference to the humoral immune response to HCV, which involves antibodies targeting to this process.
