The rapidly changing healthcare climate and global economic problems have led to the need for strong multidisciplinary research. This presents a number of opportunities for questioning traditional subject-specific approaches to health research, and allowing new collaborations to emerge. This talk will explore some of the work in progress in the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the cross-disciplinary nature of the University of Southampton.
