The Health Research Futures lab (funded by the Irish Research Council) is building capacity amongst Irish researchers to work in interdisciplinary research teams and act as a live experiential learning environment, where full time researchers/artists are developing their capacity to work in interdisciplinary teams in a safe environment. On the 7 April from 1.00 – 4.00pm in  Castletroy Park Hotel – Dublin Road, Limerick, the Health Research Futures Lab will showcase the emerging research from 5 new interdisciplinary health research teams.

Health is a subject informed by many diverse research areas across Arts, Humanities & the Social Sciences (AHSS) and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), ranging from the medical humanities to the development of new methods of treatment, from healthy places and societies to the product design for wellbeing or medical devices.

At the event there will be a presentation from each group of their work, and a panel of experts will decide on a winner of seed funding, aimed at supporting their own going research (sponsored by AcoE/Johnson & Johnson). There will also be an overview of the lab methodology, as well as a keynote address from Dr Hilary Moss, director of the National Centre for Arts and Health (NCAH) and lecturer in Music Therapy at the Irish World Academy, University of Limerick.
