Description

REGISTER NOW

The recent creation of Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is altering clinical services in Manchester and opening up new opportunities for research and innovation. This has created opportunities in identifying patient cohorts and bringing together expertise across the Trust, particularly in the area of Rare Diseases.

Come and learn about the new opportunities across MFT to develop research and clinical services in Rare Diseases. We are looking for ways in which we can promote and grow cohesively across MFT to tap into these opportunities in both established and new areas. We want to know your thoughts on how we can promote rare diseases.

Chaired by:

Professor Neil Hanley, Director for Research and Innovation, MFT



There are several broad areas where we have recognised opportunities to increase our MFT research and innovation portfolio. Spurred on by the highly successful workshop last summer around ‘Data-driven Healthcare’ that led to a recent pump-prime funding call, we would like to arrange a similar event on Rare Disease. Rare Disease impacts on every specialty in MFT and so, hopefully, you will feel this meeting is relevant to you. Amongst other goals, we want to stimulate Rare Disease research/innovation in MFT leading to patient benefit and bring people together to provide a cohesive externally facing presence. We hope to see you at the meeting.

Neil Hanley & Stephanie Yau

Director for Research & Innovation and Rare Disease Project Manager, MFT.
