We have successfully been awarded funding to host one of the NIHR Medtech and In Vitro Diagnostic Co-operatives (MICs) here in Leeds, effective from January 2018. This follows on from our success with hosting the NIHR Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative Leeds (DEC).
The NIHR MICs will build expertise and capacity in the NHS to develop new medical technologies and provide evidence on commercially-supplied in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests. Funding will be provided over five years for us to act as a Centre of expertise; bringing together patients, clinicians, researchers, commissioners and industry.
We are delighted to invite you to attend the launch event for the NIHR Leeds In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative, which will take place on Wednesday 7th March at Leeds City Museum, 09.30 – 17.00. There will be talks from a variety of speakers, including our theme leads and industry partners, with opportunities for networking. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
