MAHSC Neuroscience Domain Launch Event


The Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) Neuroscience Domain is the newest research domain in Greater Manchester, covering the wide range of neuroscience research across the region. The Domain Chair, Raj Jain, Chief Executive of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, will introduce an afternoon highlighting a selection of the research activity current taking place, and giving a spotlight to Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Manchester and University of Salford to present their research activities and interests in this area.

Manchester is one of six academic health science centres (AHSCs) in England designated to research new treatments, improve health education and transform patient care. Our goal is to make new scientific discoveries and shorten the time to turn them into effective treatments to deliver benefits for patients locally and around the world. As part of Health Innovation Manchester, MAHSC brings together our world leading academic and NHS partners to drive health research.

MAHSC’s six research domains are focused on addressing the greatest population health needs and harnessing our research excellence – cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation and repair, women and children, mental health and neuroscience.

You are invited to attend the Neuroscience Domain Virtual Showcase Event on 13th November 2020. The focus of the afternoon will be Discover, Develop and Deploy within the domain.
