Health and wellbeing
The third Sustainable Development Goal is to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages.
Though more people today are living healthier lives than ever before, many are still suffering needlessly from preventable diseases and premature death. Through working together, we can make the world a healthier place.
What we're doing
Our impactful research is world-leading, covering the breadth of biological sciences through to clinical specialities and health sciences.
Strong relationships with the NHS and industry enable us to draw on our novel discoveries to solve the most pressing issues in the life sciences. Research is thriving due to our ambitious, multi-disciplinary approach, which is underpinned by our investment in facilities and benefits from the ethnically diverse surroundings that make Leicester so special.

Health Matters Programme
