LICAMM Collaborations

LICAMM provides an integrated environment of clinical, laboratory and population-based research and education, underpinned by state-of-the-art infrastructure. 

With purpose-built laboratories, key imaging facilities in the neighbouring Trust and high-spec computing/data management underpinning population-based patient registries, a key strength of LICAMM is to integrate skills that address the entire translational pathway from bench to bedside. 

LICAMM facilitates opportunities for collaborative research that impacts upon disease treatment and improved patient care for both individuals (stratified medicine) or populations (public health and applied health research). 

Specifically, our strategic aims are to be an internationally recognised inter-disciplinary centre of excellence in cardiovascular and diabetes research and home to internationally renowned research in epidemiology and population health. 

We lead advances in learning and teaching, enterprise knowledge transfer, and clinical practice that improve health and reduce health inequalities locally and globally.

LICAMM achieves this by reaching out locally, nationally and globally to partner activities that address our vision.  We establish collaborations across the University, engage UK partners in academia, industry and the healthcare sector, and seek out overseas collaborators with whom we foster special relationships that engender an exchange of culture and ideas.

Below are just a few examples of the types of collaborations LICAMM staff are involved in.
