Professor Emma Vardy

Professor Emma Vardy is a Consultant Geriatrician and Clinical frailty and virtual ward lead at the Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation trust. She holds an honorary clinical chair with the Manchester Academic health sciences centre in the Faculty for Biology, Medicine and Health at the University of Manchester.

Professor Vardy is the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Greater Manchester Clinical Research Network ageing specialty lead and the Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester (ARC-GM) deputy lead for the health ageing.

She is senior editor for the journal Age and Ageing and is a board member of the European Delirium Association. She has published widely on topics which include delirium, acute illness in the older person, dementia, quality improvement and digital.

Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) is a partnership between The University of Manchester, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (part of the Northern Care Alliance) and Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust to unite leading healthcare providers with world-class academics and researchers.

In April 2020, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), part of Health Innovation Manchester, was officially designated by National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), NHS England and NHS Improvement up to 2025.

The MAHSC Event Series showcases the great discovery and clinical science being undertaken within Manchester and its impact on the health of the local population.

The series gives a local platform to the nationally and internationally renowned scientists of MAHSC to share their work with clinical, non-clinical, university colleagues, but also crucially members of the wider community seeking insight into innovations in the delivery of healthcare.

Open to all.

For those unable to attend, a video recording of the meeting will be here.
