The University of Northampton has launched its Research Review for 2015-2016.
The Review highlights the diversity of the research that takes place at the University, as well as the breadth and depth of its research activities. The publication – available here as a PDF – showcases the impact that this research is having at local, regional, national and international levels that makes a positive difference to the lives of people and the environment.
The Review reflects on the University’s wide-ranging and high-quality research projects, including research into the biological mechanisms of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) – a fatal genetic disorder affecting children; a study of children’s experiences of domestic violence; examining ecosystem services and biodiversity in relation to the Nene Valley Nature Improvement Area; investigating how participants cope in extreme and challenging conditions as part of the Empty Quarter expedition project; helping to improve the way Europe transports goods; and positively impacting of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Professor Simon Denny, Executive Dean: Research, Impact and Enterprise, commented: “The range and quality of the research that we do at the University has clear impact on society and the environment. The Review highlights an increasingly positive picture of our great research work and is a testament to the hard work of colleagues throughout the University. I would like to take this opportunity to thank colleagues from across the University and wish them success for 2016-2017.”
