NIHR Manchester BRC Training Event and Seminar Series 2023-24

We are delighted to launch the new NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Training Event and Seminar Series. This series will highlight the breadth of our BRC’s experimental medicine research and stimulate scientific discussion and collaboration in a series of online and in person events.


The audience for the series is everyone who is contributing to the programmes of work across the BRC – researchers, students, fellows, technical and operations staff, health and care professionals and the wider community. We are also keen to ensure our training events and seminars are accessible across our NHS and university partner organisations, NIHR Infrastructure and NIHR Schools across the North West (Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria), the wider Northern BRC Network and nationally.

The three main objectives are to:

  1. Highlight the breadth of BRC experimental medicine research and stimulate scientific discussion across the BRC community and collaborative work across BRC Clusters and areas;
  2. Through the lens of experimental medicine research, develop insights into key core areas such as in innovation, digital, patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE), Team Research, and how they are being applied across BRC research;
  3. Create a diverse community of learning, share development opportunities and foster engagement for staff, students, public and patients and wider partners.
