Durham University's Institute for Medical Humanities (IMH) awarded with the Wellcome Discovery Research Platform Award

Led by Angela Woods (Director) and Ben Alderson-Day (Co-director), the Discovery Research Platform for Medical Humanities (DRP-MH) will tackle intellectual and practical barriers – of diversity, connection, risk, evidence and scale – faced in medical humanities research.

This is the largest grant made by Wellcome for humanities research and recognises the transformative power and value medical humanities research brings to our understanding of health and human experience.

Led by Professor Angela Woods and Dr Ben Alderson-Day, it will centre people with lived experience and people from marginalised communities as the co-creators of research tackling global health challenges, including mental ill health and health inequalities.
