Partnerships & enterprise

Our academics place knowledge exchange and enterprise at the heart of their research and educational activities.

As a top centre for healthcare research, we are proud to have earned a global reputation for innovation. But our discoveries do not just exist on paper.

Instead, we are committed to working in partnership with public and private enterprise to develop our findings and ultimately bring them onto society and the global healthcare market.

Our philosophy is to constantly improve practice by challenging norms and searching for innovative and radical solutions to today's problems.

As a multidisciplinary group of academics and clinicians, we engage widely with business, public and voluntary organisations to create social, cultural, and economic impact for health.

We leverage our world-class know-how on the physiological and psychosocial determinants of health, and on healthcare systems and workforces, along with our cutting-edge methods and testing facilities, to develop innovative, evidence-based insights that inform health policy, health interventions, and health products.

Our knowledge exchange is multi-scale, far reaching, and it spans sectors. Examples of our partnerships enterprise work include:
