£23.6 million boost for medical research in Nottingham


Medical researchers in Nottingham have received a transformational £23.6 million package of government funding to expand their pioneering work into new treatments and diagnostics for a wide range of health problems. 

The University of Nottingham and Nottingham University Hospitals Trust will establish a large new Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) which will incorporate two existing smaller Biomedical Research Units in the city. The Nottingham BRC will be the leading UK hub in five key areas of health research: 

  • Deafness and hearing loss
  • Gastrointestinal and liver disease
  • Respiratory medicine
  • Musculoskeletal disease
  • Mental health technology 

At the core of the Biomedical Research Centre will be Nottingham’s world-leading expertise in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It means the latest medical imaging research and technology pioneered here can be translated into real benefits for patients in all five of the BRC’s research areas.
