Liverpool Translational Hub

Translational research is defined as “medical research that is concerned with facilitating the practical application of scientific discoveries to the development and implementation of new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease”

Welcome. The Liverpool Translational Hub supports researchers to fully translate a research idea into practical improvement of healthcare and prevention of disease. It provides translational advice, training, and mentorship, alongside access to in-house and external funding and expertise.

The Hub is also the structure though which potential partners can connect with us and find opportunities for collaborating with our researchers.

Researchers can find internal funding opportunities posted here, so please check back for updates. 

The following contacts represent the primary expertise available in the named areas. We have extensive experience in supporting all aspects of translational research activity and are happy to advise and assist with specific queries. We welcome feedback on researcher support needs in this area. If you need help with a translational project, have a suggestion for support not already covered, or have a general query, contact us for signposting: Amanda Fitzgerald a.fitzgerald@liverpool.ac.uk or Rosie Corbin r.corbin@liverpool.ac.uk
