NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the nation’s largest funder of health and care research and provides the people, facilities and technology that enables research to thrive.
NIHR Applied Research Collaborations (ARCs) support applied health and care research that responds to, and meets, the needs of local populations and local health and care systems.
The NIHR ARC Greater Manchester is one of 15 ARCs across England, part of a £135 million investment by the NIHR to improve the health and care of patients and the public.
We work with partners to translate priorities into answerable research questions, ensuring that jointly-produced research is relevant, useful and applicable to local service needs and affects policy and practice within Greater Manchester and beyond.
We are hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, as part of Health Innovation Manchester (HInM), working in collaboration with the local NHS, universities, councils, research funders, patients and the public, to deliver and enable world-class research.
