About the NIHR Leeds BRC

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) in partnership with the University of Leeds (UoL) has been awarded a National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Leeds Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) with funding of £19.8million for five years. This exciting investment in translational medicine represents a threefold increase in our previous funding and provides a unique opportunity to drive research which makes a difference to the health and wealth of the United Kingdom, but also to our local community.

Building on our existing strength in musculoskeletal disease and engagement with patients and the public who are at the heart of all our activities, the new NIHR Leeds BRC now includes research in surgical technologies, haematology (with the University of York), cardiometabolic disease, pathology, and antimicrobial resistance.

Our vision for the NIHR Leeds BRC

Our vision is to improve health and wellbeing by accelerating diagnosis, enabling early treatment that is personalised for each patient and, where possible, prevent disease and infection. It builds on Leeds’ sustained excellence in translational research and industry partnership in musculoskeletal disease (MSKD), heart disease, cancer and infection. It is driven by the need to address the grand challenges of an ageing, multi-morbid population.
