We have a thriving programme of research activities across the six domains of research excellence:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Inflammation and repair
  • Women and children
  • Mental health
  • Neuroscience

These are supported by three cross-cutting themes – digital, precision health and applied health research. Over the last four years, we have invested over £3.5m in domain research projects.

Through Health Innovation Manchester, we are working with local research partners to focus activity on addressing the health and social care priorities, as well as to secure further funding and advance translational research delivery in the frontline.

By harnessing our world-leading research activity to address health inequalities and working more closely with frontline clinicians, we can deliver major benefits for our population. Through our devolved health and social care system, we can support researchers to accelerate discoveries through into routine clinical practice and ultimately improve health outcomes in this region and beyond.
