The Institute of Translational Medicine (ITM) was officially opened on Tuesday October 4 by John Clancy, Leader of Birmingham City Council.
Funded through the Birmingham City Deal and delivered by Birmingham Health Partners, the facility brings together clinical expertise, pioneering science, and academic excellence to accelerate the delivery of precision healthcare.
It aims to speed up the rate at which research can improve patient treatments and outcomes by using a multi-disciplinary, highly-collaborative approach that will include all components of the bench-to-bedside pathway.
Professor Subrata Ghosh, ITM Director said: “This world-class clinical research facility has been created out of a vision to translate science to relieve human suffering.
“It will facilitate communication and collaboration between different disciplines and expertise to solve problems and break down barriers while facilitating the rapid and cost-effective assessment of new drugs, medical devices and diagnostics.”
