The Center for Health and Medical Psychology (CHAMP) unites researchers with a shared interest in the psychological underpinnings of health, ill-health, and disease. We examine psychological mechanisms that drive health, ill-health, and disease, and engage in multidisciplinary collaborations that enable us to examine and understand health from a biopsychosocial perspective.

Our vision is to be an internationally leading center for theory and research into the psychological underpinnings of health, ill-health, and disease. Our long-term goal is to be able to contribute to the development of cost-effective and evidence-based preventive measures and treatments to reduce ill-health and disease in societies. To this end, we collaborate actively with external actors to translate the knowledge generated by our research into the development of clinical assessments, preventive measures, and treatments that are adopted in healthcare, education and work sectors.
