The Translation Manchester Research Network (TMRN) brings together groups and organisation which support health-related translational research projects at all stages- whether they be in the early discovery stages or advancing towards adoption and spread. The TMRN is a one-stop shop for all of your translational research support needs.

Since February 2021, we have been running monthly online seminars open to all researchers across the University. This is a unique opportunity for you to connect with Translation Manchester Research Network (TMRN) partners and hear how they can help support and progress translational research projects. The growing network includes organisations from across the University, Greater Manchester NHS Trusts and industry. With network members supporting projects at each phase of the translational research pathway, this is your opportunity to meet them and develop future collaborations.

The last event of these monthly seminars was held virtually on the 30th June 2022 13:0014:00. Speakers was our own Translational Research Bioinformatician, Dr Lijing Lin.

Dr Lijing Lin provides expertise in bioinformatics to the benefit of the translational research community and supporting translational researchers across the University and its partner organisations. Lijing obtained her PhD in Numerical Analysis from the University of Manchester in 2011 and then undertook Research Associate roles in both the School of Mathematics (2011– 2014) and the School of Health Sciences (2014 — 2021). Her experience covers the spectrum from basic research in scientific computing, to biomedical research and bioinformatics analysis. In this talk, Lijing spoke about bioinformatics hurdles often met in Translational Research, and introduce a range of informatics support provided by Translation Manchester, including Informatics Training Scheme, Access to Expertise funding, and Request Bioinformatics Expertise.
