Working with the Sensory Trust, this systematic review has synthesised the qualitative research evidence about how older people describe their sensory engagement with the natural world.
This project is investigating the conditions under which antibiotic resistance genes are advantageous to bacteria, with a focus on farm animals.
Identifying environmental reservoirs of novel antibiotic resistant genes This project is seeking to reveal how humans are exposed to environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistant organisms. Previous work by Dr William Gaze has demonstrated that the natural environment can act as a reservoir of previously unknown antibiotic resistant genes. By cloning DNA into antibiotic susceptible E.…
This study is assessing the evidence that exists for the attention restoration values of exposure to natural environments and images.
This project is investigating whether sex in bacteria can help them get ahead in their arms race with viruses. Just as humans, bacteria suffer from attack of deadly viruses. Parasitic viruses and their hosts are locked in a continuing arms race: hosts develop resistance against their parasites, and parasites evolve to overcome this resistance and…
This research investigated how different types and qualities of natural environment can have varying relationships with human health and wellbeing.
The BlueHealth project brings together a multi-disciplinary consortium to investigate how aquatic environments affect the health of Europe’s population.
The Centre is considering the health impacts of climate change in BASE, a major European Commission FP7 funded project on climate change adaptation.
This Defra Research Fellowship will improve understanding of how different environments can impact health and how this can be considered in decision making.
This study is using UK Biobank data to investigate the causal relationship between over 40 genetic factors and type 2 diabetes and obesity.
