Who we are

Leadership and Management | Partners

PenARC directly funds a number of staff and PhD students, primarily across sites in Exeter and Plymouth. Some of our staff are grouped into teams specialising in specific areas of research:

  • PenCHORD (the Peninsula Collaboration for Health Operational Research and Development) focus on quantitative modelling techniques

  • The Evidence Synthesis Team (EST) are health services researchers with expertise in evidence synthesis methods

  • Our Implementation Science Group specialise in putting effective health care into practice

  • The Patient and Public Involvement team (PPI) are experts in involving the public in health care research and support PenCLAHRC to embed PPI within our own research

We also support a a number of NHS colleagues who work closely with us and have a wide network of affiliated partners across the South West. You can find out more about our team via our staff database.
