Our AHSC drives the translation of innovative research into patient benefit.
We bring together world-leading research and clinical expertise to transform the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of the greatest health challenges affecting our population. We align objectives and resources across organisations, to accelerate the translation of discoveries in areas of unmet need.
Our AHSC is distinct from other AHSCs – which are often a partnership of a single hospital and university – because we bring together a cluster of world-class specialist institutions to deliver world-class clinical, research and educational outcomes.
Academic Health Science Centres are designated by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the National Institute for Health and Care Research for demonstrating excellence in health research, health education and patient care.
Our members have made significant contributions to the national efforts around COVID-19 through their world-leading research and clinical expertise – read more about our AHSC response.
