We aim to facilitate and support the progression of scientific discoveries towards the delivery of improved healthcare.
Taking discovery research to patient-centred research and then clinical implementation is a multi-step process, as you can see from the Translational Research Pathway (PowerPoint presentation).

How we can help you
Moving your research along the Translational Research Pipeline
We can help your research progress to the next stage of the pipeline. We have established the Translation Manchester Research Network as a central resource that brings together the University, NHS and industry across Greater Manchester.
We also provide funding and training to help you overcome bottlenecks in your research. Get in touch to see how we can support your translational research by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finding a translational research angle for pure basic research
If you work in pure basic research (D1 on the Translational Research Pipeline) and want to find a translational research angle, we can help you explore this.
The earlier you consider how your research can translate into a healthcare benefit, the better. The link between your research and healthcare improvement might not be obvious, but we can help, so please get in touch by emailing email@example.com.
Meet the team behind Translation Manchester and find out how they can help you to overcome barriers in advancing your translational research.
