Mary Seacole Research Centre (MSRC)

Promoting Equality and Diversity in Health and Social Care, Mental Health, Disability and Sexual Health Research

The Mary Seacole Research Centre brings together inter-disciplinary researchers with interests in diversity research in health and social care with specific foci on mental health, disability and sexual health. Our understanding of diversity includes attention to ethnic and cultural dimensions, mental health, learning and physical disabilities, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans health and social inequalities, spirituality and gender as well as multi-agency working and education for culturally competent practice.

Working collaboratively with colleagues across the university, nationally and internationally, we pursue four major strands of research:

  • mental health
  • disability
  • sexual health
  • ethnicity, cultural diversity and health

We conduct research in

  • ethnicity and health
  • mental health, disability and ethnicity
  • health care perspectives - what works for users and carers and a culturally competent workforce
  • sexual health and HIV prevention
  • the social determinants of health
  • public and patient involvement in research

Collaborative Working

Collaborative work with health and social care agencies and community groups is a priority, to ensure active dissemination and implementation of research findings in practice. Researchers at the MSRC are active in international networks to promote equality in health and care.
