The funding will create new academic posts and develop strong training and career development programmes. Funding will also provide the technical staff, IT systems, equipment, administrative support, research facilities and other infrastructure needed to support high quality research.

The other four successful Centres, which were awarded funding via a competitive process, are based in Newcastle, Cardiff, Belfast and Cambridge.

The partners who provided the 20m investment for the initiative came together under the umbrella of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) to develop a coordinated approach to strengthen public health research in the UK, and tackle complex issues which have the potential to improve the health of the UK population.
