Early career researchers receive Elizabeth Blackwell Institute funding
26 June 2019
A team of three early career researchers based across Bristol Medical School, the School of Psychological Science, and the School of Economics have been awarded funding from the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute’s (EBI) Bioethics, Biolaw and Biosociety Research Strand. This strand focuses on research into the ethical, legal and social dimensions of health and the biosciences and aims to facilitate inter-disciplinary research. The team comprises of Dr Hannah Sallis from the Centre of Academic Mental Health, Dr Robyn Wootton from the Tobacco and Alcohol Research Group, and Dr Adele Wang based in the School of Economics.
The project forms part of a larger funding bid aiming to understand causal pathways to mental wellbeing and will use a number of complementary, novel techniques to unpick the complex association between health behaviours and wellbeing. To start, Dr Sallis, Dr Wootton and Dr Wang will use the funds awarded by the EBI to arrange and host a networking meeting for a range of stakeholders and collaborators involved in the funding bid.
