Greater Manchester has a deep heritage in science, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) connects world-leading researchers based at The University of Manchester and three NHS Trusts in Greater Manchester, with a vision to drive health improvements and lasting change for all through creative, inclusive and proactive research that identifies and bridges gaps between new discoveries and individualised care.
Manchester cancer researcher Professor Gareth Evans was recently recognised for his work in advancing women’s health, after receiving a prestigious honorary fellowship by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
This MAHSC Seminar Series event will showcase the great discovery and clinical science being undertaken in Manchester, and the impact of cancer prevention and early detection research on the population.
We are driving forward pioneering research into new tests and treatments in musculoskeletal disease, hearing health, respiratory disease, dermatology and three cancer themes (prevention, radiotherapy and precision medicine), utilising our expertise in biomarkers, informatics and the rapid translation of research findings.
