Health Psychology Research Unit



Health Psychology Research Unit (HPRU) is an independent research unit, headed by Clare Bradley,  Professor of Health Psychology and based in the Orchard Building at Royal Holloway. HPRU was established as a separate unit from the Psychology Department in November 2011. Prior to this, Clare Bradley was the Director of Health Psychology Research within psychology.  The move to Orchard Building brings HPRU into the same location as the spin-out company, Health Psychology Research Ltd, which Clare Bradley incorporated in 2004 .
