Innovation and Partnerships

The NIHR Manchester BRC aims to be the collaborator of choice for strategic partners and investors.

Our Vision

We recognise that 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 our research vision to drive personalised health and care for all.

Partner With Us

We recognise the value that a diverse portfolio of collaborations brings to the people of Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria and it is our ambition to enable this. We want to engage with new industry, public and charity partners to deliver on our ambitious plans.

Whether you are a large multi-national looking to analyse the efficacy of a new therapy, a local SME (small or medium size enterprise) wanting to gain clinical insight into your commercial development, or a non-commercial organisation with a shared passion for sustainable healthcare change we want to hear from you.
