New publications highlight examples of innovative academic-NHS-industry research collaborations




Two new booklets have been published that showcase models for research partnerships between universities, NHS organisations and the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical technology and diagnostics industries.

The first booklet includes six examples of early phase research partnerships between the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, the NHS and university research groups. They illustrate different models of collaboration, supported by a range of funders and cover a number of therapeutic areas, company profiles and technology types. The booklet was developed jointly by the NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure (NOCRI) and the Medical Research Council.

The second booklet, also developed by NOCRI, highlights partnerships between the NIHR clinical research infrastructure and the medical technology and diagnostics industries. Examples show a variety of ways that NIHR centres, units and facilities are working with companies in these sectors. The collaborations featured include early development of ideas to tackle unmet clinical needs and studies to generate evidence to support the adoption of new technologies into routine clinical practice.
