Health & Care

Theme Lead: Professor Niels Peek

The organising principle of the Health and Care theme is the transformation of all aspects of health and care to be predictive, preventative, participatory and personalised through digital technology.

As part of the theme's activities we coordinate the GM Connected Health Ecosystem, the NewMind Network & the UK Health Data Analytics Network .

Scope of Theme

The health and care theme promotes the use of digital technologies to understand the causes and progressions of diseases, develop new diagnostics and therapies, understand the complex interaction between health and environment, optimise the health and care system, develop new experimental methods and to validate digital health technology. The theme includes:


• Digital health and care interventions
• Learning health systems
• Digital epidemiology and public health
• Behaviour change and self-care
• Systems biology
• Precision medicine
• Real-world trials
