Priority

A growing number of people requires medical care and support, not only due to population ageing but also as a result of lifestyle changes. This year’s applications have favoured approaches that look holistically at the experience of being ill or disabled and tackle the full lifecycle of different conditions. Diabetes, respiratory diseases and sensory impairments are some of the most significant areas that universities are working to address. Their ultimate aim is to give back to patients as much of a normal life as possible, whilst minimising suffering for those with chronic conditions.
