Manchester AHSC was formally established in July 2008 to underpin the development of Greater Manchester as a world leader in health research.
A federation, which interconnects Manchester's existing research activity and research partnerships, offers huge potential and opportunities and will generate health benefits, economic development, enterprise, innovation and wealth creation in Greater Manchester and the wider North West.
Our vision is to be a leading global centre for the delivery of innovative applied health research and education into healthcare.
Manchester AHSC is based on a federal model, and is the first AHSC in the UK to cover the full spectrum of care:
- mental health
- primary care
