MAHSC has been designated an academic health science centre by the Department of Health with a scope that covers research, healthcare services, education and industry.
Working together, we will improve health outcomes for Greater Manchester, provide innovative healthcare delivery, and stimulate the local economy.
MAHSC Clinical Trials Unit
Under the umbrella of Health Innovation Manchester (HInM), the city region is aligning its clinical research assets and infrastructure through a ‘One Manchester’ approach. This approach, relying on the collaborative and inter-organisational development and use of regional research facilities and joint applications for key research funding streams, is enabling Manchester to tackle regional health problems more effectively, and develop as a world-leading location for clinical trials. Along with Manchester’s clinical research facilities and the Greater Manchester Research Hub, MAHSC-CTU is one of the key assets helping to make this vision a reality. Currently, MAHSC-CTU is undertaking a programme of expansion. The aim is to provide, on a single central site on the university campus, critical mass and cross-discipline collaboration to improve the unit’s visibility and identity for collaborators. MAHSC-CTU will provide the latest cutting-edge methodologies for investigators and support for the design and costing of trials, randomisation, data management and research governance.Read more
Our Research Excellence
Research within experimental medicine spans fundamental discovery science to translational approaches, which include early phase clinical trials. Infrastructure on an unparalleled scale Our research infrastructure underpins excellent research from invention and early translation (experimental medicine) all the way through to adoption and diffusion. By integrating our basic science and translational research infrastructure to drive forward research, we are able to address healthcare needs and transform the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases for population benefit and wider economic gain. Excellence in experimental medicine The MAHSC partnership is a centre of excellence, strength and depth in experimental medicine and translational research. Our strategic approach to research is through the lens of P4 Medicine: to prevent disease, predict disease progression, personalise treatment pathways and empower patients to participate in their healthcare. This P4 Medicine approach is applied through all our research and cross-cutting themes (as shown in the diagram below) to provide opportunities for sharing expertise and discoveries, in order to deliver efficient experimental research that maximises synergies across our partnership and accelerates discoveries through to routinely commissioned care.Read more
