Researchers from across the University of Bristol have contributed images to the Picture of Health project, representing their health-related research or research interests. The project is inspired by a series of six themes: Growing up and growing older, Conflict, Care and caring, Consumption, Green and Wellbeing.
Across the University of Bristol, researchers are generating innovative, high quality work which improves health and well-being. Research which can affect health is located in different departments and it can be difficult to identify who is working on what in a timely way.
All images were published on the Picture of Health website during Spring 2017.
Picture of Health team received over 60 submissions from researchers from 8 different departments across the University of Bristol.
Dr Melanie Chalder, a Research Fellow with Bristol University, is currently working with Brunelcare on a project and submitted some of our photographs – four of which feature in Picture of Health!
