Drawing on business school faculty across management disciplines, from organisational behaviour and operations management to marketing and strategy, and on partners with the specific relevant industry expertise, we focus on three key research themes:

Health service delivery

Health service delivery.

The management challenges of delivering effective and affordable frontline services are the primary concern of this theme. We have four major programmes:

  • Leadership and Institutional Change
  • Knowledge Transfer
  • Health Information Systems
  • Operational Effectiveness and Service Innovation

Pharma, biotech and medtech

Pharma biotech and medtech.

Biomedical and engineering technology will continue to be critically important to achieve better health for more people. Are our business models and management practices effective in creating and exploiting technological advance? Cambridge, with its leading position in biotechnology and engineering research, is an excellent place to study this question. Our key areas of interest in this programme are the challenges faced by biopharmaceutical companies, large and small, and the shape of the evolving new business models in this industry.

Healthcare in developing countries

Healthcare in developing countries.

Co-innovation with the bottom of the socio-economic pyramid: how firms and other organisations are actively engaging those who live on less than $1 a day through innovative products, services and business models. This can be a two-way highway of innovation creation and adoption to address the increasing demands of healthcare needs across the world.
