Powering translational research across Greater Manchester
Translation Manchester is part of a Wellcome Trust initiative to overcome barriers to translational research across Greater Manchester by bringing together a network of support, facilities and expertise to make the pathway to translation quicker and easier.
Translational research is the process by which basic scientific research is ‘translated’ into patient focused research, improved patient and population healthcare, and wellbeing.
Successful translational research relies on collaborations and multidisciplinary working. With appropriate support, successful collaborations can progress research along the translational pathway.
We have created a research network to bring an infrastructure together in a central and easily accessible space that will:
- Ensure the translatability of ongoing projects at all stages of the translational pathway.
- Forge new and productive connections between academic researchers and the clinical workforce.
- Raise awareness of translational research at the University and associated Greater Manchester NHS trusts.
- Support investigators to overcome ‘blocks’ to translational research.
