Behavioural Medicine

Description
This group is multidisciplinary in nature, focuses mainly on intervention development and evaluation, but includes epidemiological and policy work.Behavioural Medicine comprises the development and integration of environmental, behavioural and biomedical knowledge relevant to health and disease, and the application of this knowledge to prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.In all of these areas, the focus of our work is on applied research. In particular, we aim to develop and test pragmatic interventions for use in primary care, but we are also engaged in explanatory trials and translational research. Under the umbrella of behavioural medicine there are three main areas of research:1.Exercise as a treatment or intervention in chronic disease 2.Tobacco control interventions The Smoking Research Group (SRG) is a team of people working on all aspects of tobacco control, but in particular on smoking cessation and harm reduction. We are part of the UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies (www.ukctcs.org), which is a five year program of research representing collaboration UK universities working in tobacco control. 3.Weight controlInterventions related to prevention and treatment of adults and children with obesity. This includes the childhood obesity prevention group whose main focus is on the development, implementation and evaluation of childhood obesity interventions, but includes, epidemiology of childhood obesity, behavioural and biological influences on childhood obesity, the health, psychological, economic, and social consequences of childhood obesity, social marketing approaches and methods for measurement of obesity, diet and physical activity in children

Behavioural neuroscience research - School of Psychology

Description
The behavioural neuroscience group within the School of Psychology take a biological approach to the psychology of human behaviours, investigating areas including co-ordination and balance, action prediction and agency, eating behavior, pain anxiety and attention, social cognition, motor control, psychosocial consequences of drug use and spatial attention.

B-Film

Description
Introduction to the research and study of B-Film at the University of Birmingham.

BILCAP Trial

Description
Index page for the BILCAP trial at the University of Birmingham

Bioengineering - Formulation Engineering Research - School of Chemical Engineering

Description
In Biochemical Engineering we are currently working on a number of fronts with the aim of exploiting biological molecules, cells, and tissues to develop a range of high-value products.

Biological hydrogen production - University of Birmingham

Description
Biological hydrogen production at the University of Birmingham. Hydrogen is seen by many as the fuel of the future because it has a very high energy density, three times that of petrol or diesel, and because its use produces only water instead of greenhouse gases and other exhaust pollutants.

Biomaterials

Description
This theme area seeks to develop novel biomaterials and tissue engineering approaches for application in dental and broader body organ contexts and to relate their clinical performance to studies of their mechanical and biological properties.

Bio-medical and micro engineering - Mechanical Engineering research

Description
Advances in medicine (e.g. "key-hole" surgery) require ever smaller devices. The merger of two important applications of engineering into a single Bio-medical and Micro Engineering Research Centre enables Birmingham to make a major contribution to this trend.

Bio-medical Engineering - Mechanical Engineering research

Description
The Bio-Medical Engineering Research Group is part of the Bio-medical and Micro Engineering Research Centre. The group aims to understand the physical properties of natural and synthetic materials and to use this understanding to design and develop medical devices.
