Greater Manchester has a strong record for rapidly translating cutting-edge science into new tests and treatments to benefit patients.
The Rapid Translational Incubator (RTI) is responsible for signposting researchers to operational support and providing oversight to ensure that research is rapidly translated into clinical practice.
The RTI brings together key infrastructure essential to the design and delivery of clinical studies, as well as the commercialisation of new healthcare products.
Peer support network – experimental medicine
The RTI signposts researchers to appropriate support when setting up and running trials and studies in GM. We run networking events and webinars to discuss solutions to common problems in a supportive peer network.

Note: This information includes support available in Manchester, challenges that may occur and potential solutions when setting up studies and trials. They have been created in the spirit of peer support and to provide a forum to learn from other people’s experiences when setting up studies. This information complements the training and specific information provided by other organisations and does not replace their advice and guidelines. It will be reviewed and added to on a regular basis.
