NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre
The NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre works across Greater Manchester to transform scientific breakthroughs into diagnostic tests and life-saving treatments for patients, driving forward pioneering research in:
- Musculoskeletal disease
- Hearing health
- Respiratory disease
- Cancer (prevention and early detection, radiotherapy and precision medicine)
Hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust and The University of Manchester, in partnership with The Christie and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trusts, we use our connected research infrastructure and expertise in biomarker discovery, informatics and data sciences, patient and public involvement and engagement, training and our rapid translation incubator to drive advances straight into clinical care.
The development of new clinical tests and treatments requires significant investment, specialist facilities and a diverse skillset, only made possible through a collaborative approach. We partner with science-based organisations that have a strategic fit with the overall goal of improving people’s health through experimental research. Via connections with NIHR infrastructure and key policy leaders, we offer a unique landscape to deliver research at scale and impact.
We collaborate with industry to provide academic input into commercial therapeutic and diagnostic development, study design, and access to consented clinical samples and data to validate innovations
