Global & Community Health
At Maynooth University, our researchers are gaining new insights into mental and physical health and illness.
Our teams study the challenges to human well-being in the cultural, social, psychological and biological aspects.
Particular areas of Maynooth University expertise include the study of the interaction between poverty and disease and how these forces exacerbate disadvantage. We explore the community context of health and social care and assess the efficacy of psychological interventions.
Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact email@example.com for more information.
