Partnerships with impact
Health Innovation Manchester
Our domain is closely aligned to the inflammation and repair domain of Health Innovation Manchester (formerly MAHSC). We are working in collaboration to improve the treatment, management and care of patients with inflammatory disease.
We have formed close partnerships with the University Hospital of South Manchester, Salford Royal and Manchester Royal Infirmary. This will ensure collaborative research on well-characterised patient cohorts and take discoveries from the laboratory bench to the bedside – and vice versa.

UK-CIC researchers, including Professor Tracy Hussell, say thank you to study participants, sample donors, their family members and UK healthcare workers. Over the last year, UK-CIC researchers have analysed data from thousands of samples donated from patients with COVID-19, the families of those affected by it, or healthcare workers. UK-CIC’s research would not have been possible without the generosity of those people, and to express our thanks, we have put together a video showing just how much those donations are appreciated.
