Oxford Road Corridor is home to one of the largest clinical academic campuses in Europe, attracting clinicians, students and researchers from around the world.
The Corridor is home to one of the largest clinical academic campuses in Europe, with strengths that include cancer, diagnostics, genomic medicine, clinical trials, and digital health. Major R&D assets that build on the underpinning translational research and discovery capability at the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University include the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre, the Manchester Clinical Research Facility, the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, and the recently launched Christabel Pankhurst Institute for Health Technology and Institute of Sport.
These R&D assets sit alongside the clinical and research translation excellence of the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), which has five hospitals on the Corridor. The Corridor is home to 50% of Manchester’s life sciences businesses.
Health Innovation Manchester joins up the Corridor’s R&D and clinical excellence with the wider GM devolved health and care system to accelerate the discovery, development and deployment of new solutions into the local NHS and care sector.
