About the IHS

Institute of Health Sciences (2000-12) existed to improve health and health care practice. It was a networked organisation, bringing together the leading health science research groups from across The University of Manchester and local NHS organisations. By working closely with the NHS, the IHS enhanced health research and its dissemination, encouraging the development of evidence-based health policy and practice.

In 2012, the activities and team merged with the Research Deanery in Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences, see more about the merger.
