Hello and welcome to the Health Behaviour Research Centre blog! We are an academic research group made up of psychologists, epidemiologists, nutritionists, physiologists and health promotion experts. Our research is focused on behaviours related to health (such as diet, smoking, exercise, cancer screening and symptom reporting), particularly those that are related to cancer. We are funded mainly by Cancer-Research UK as well as other organisations such as the Medical Research Council, the National Institute of Health Research, Biotechnology and Biological Research Council and the British Heart Foundation.
In this blog we aim to bring to you snippets of research from our own areas of expertise so that you can keep up to date with the latest in the world of health behaviour research. If you would like to contact us, our e-mail addresses are at the end of each blog post or you can look us up at the official HBRC website.
