With five out of seven of the UK’s academic health sciences centres, the golden triangle is uniquely positioned to stimulate collaboration and enable the successful translation of pioneering medical treatments, therapies and technological developments.
Fundamental to the research success of the region are the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs). The BRC objective was established in England in 2007 as a way of partnering academic institutions and NHS trusts, with the goal of translating advances in biomedical research into benefits for patients. Working across some of the most challenging disease areas including oncology, immunology and neurology, many of these centres have conducted a number of worldfirst studies that have led to significant breakthroughs. The centres were formed in 2012, ten of which are located in the greater south east of England and collectively received nearly £700 million of funding from the NIHR.
