“The UK is at the international forefront of developments in basic biomedical research that have the potential to transform patient care. It is vital that we turn that potential into reality.”
“We will create Research Centres within our leading NHS / university partnerships to drive progress on innovation and translational research in biomedicine and NHS service quality and safety.”
“We will support purpose-built, cutting-edge clinical research facilities and specialist clinical, research and support staff in locations where universities and NHS Trusts can work together on dedicated programmes of patient-orientated research.”
“Access to technology platforms is increasingly essential for the conduct of leading edge health research. Current access to these platforms is inadequate across the NHS in England. The initial focus will be on diagnostic imaging, the area identified as most critical in scoping work conducted by the Academy of Medical Sciences and our recent survey of NHS providers.”
Eleven Biomedical Research Centres have recently been created
to drive forward innovation and translational research.
