2018 has been another successful year for our research centre, CHARR, with research a number of grants awarded to staff and PhD candidates.
The highlight of our year's success has been the award of an HRC Project grant to Prof Leigh Hale and team for their project "Co-creating a digital self-help intervention for people with persistent pain". Many other exciting and novel projects have also been funded and we look forward to 2019 to see these projects up and running. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our funders, big or small, who support our work.
