Researching Multilingualism, Multilingualism in Research Practice

This project (2010-2013), funded by the ESRC under its Researcher Development Initiative, aimed to provide for researchers at different points in their career, advanced training and development activities which are related to the study of multilingualism and to multilingualism in research practice.

Resilience and sustainability - Civil Engineering research

This core research theme aims to study novel built-environment and buried infrastructure solutions to minimise water, energy and other resource usage commensurate with economic, social and environmental health.

Resilience and Sustainability - Civil Engineering research - Floods

An introduction to hydraulic engineering research.

Resilience and Sustainability - Civil Engineering research - Wind Engineering

Wind engineering is becoming increasingly important because of more extreme weather events. By building what is believed to be the UK's leading research team in this subject, the aim of this research theme is to address the complex challenges posed to engineers.

Respiratory Health

This multidisciplinary research group focuses on COPD, within a broader setting of respiratory epidemiology. Our research integrates the epidemiology of COPD, its management in primary care and translational research. The aim is to advance understanding of COPD and improve care and outcomes through linked studies and systematic reviews. There is also work on occupational asthma and smoking.

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Periodontal Inflammatory Disease (RAPID)

The most prevalent chronic inflammatory diseases of humans are complex disorders of multifactorial aetiology influenced by genes, the environment and their interactions. Periodontitis (PD) and rheumatoid arthritis are two such chronic inflammatory diseases associated with significant morbidity and mortality, and have recently shown to have a bidirectional association. Moreover, the prevalence of both increases substantially with age, and given both the Europe-wide ageing population and the impact of both diseases upon the economy, health and quality of life, it is clear that novel and more cost effective approaches to management are urgently required

Rheumatoid Arthritis: the Public InformeD (RAPID)

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic condition which has a profound impact on the life of those suffering with it. It is a disabling autoimmune disease which causes inflammation of the joints and which can occur in people of all ages. The RAPID project started in December 2012 and will run for two years. It aims to explore the perceptions of Rheumatoid Arthritis in the public.An outcome of this project will be a better understanding of perceptions, knowledge and decision making surrounding RA and the onset of RA symptoms.

Rising Powers and Interdependent Futures (2013-2015)

This interdisciplinary project aims to map Russia's governance-related influences in the post-Soviet states in the 'common neighbourhood' with the EU.
