The Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH) takes an intersectoral and interdisciplinary approach in all of its activities.
The Center is managed by a group of experts from across the Colleges, including two new professors - one in agriculture appointed at SOAS and one in health appointed at LSHTM - who provide LCIRAH vision and leadership.
These appointments, as well as other postdoctoral and lecturer appointments in the lead Colleges, are made by intersectoral and interdisciplinary panels. A joint PhD programme has awarded studentships competitively to the best research ideas coming from two or more groups representing different agri-health sectors or disciplines. Staff and students from across the Colleges are co-located in a dedicated facility at LIDC.
