Manchester Academic Health Science Centre

Uniting leading healthcare providers with world-class academics and researchers through MAHSC

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. Find out more about the designation in this news story.

It is one of only eight academic health science centres in England – and the only one in the North West – 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.

The MAHSC discovery and translation strategy is delivered by six domains, each led jointly by an academic and an NHS clinician and chaired by a CEO from a partner Trust. The domains are: Cancer, Cardiovascular & Diabetes, Inflammation and Repair, Mental Health, Neuroscience, and Women & Children.

Crucially, research projects undertaken via MAHSC and GM’s other research bodies are pulled through HInM’s innovation pathway to provide a rich pipeline of evidence-based innovations that can be deployed at pace and scale.  It means we can make real fast-tracked improvements to the health of local people and beyond.
