Advanced Care Research Centre

About us

The ACRC is a multi-disciplinary research programme combining research across fields including medicine and other care professions, engineering, informatics, data and social sciences.

Our vision is to improve the quality and sustainability of care provision and to reduce inequalities in care provision in order to enhance the quality of life, dignity and the desired level of independence of people living with multiple conditions in later life.
