The Centre for Healthcare Technologies is a unique collaboration between the University of Nottingham and the NUH NHS Trust. This Centre will work with all stakeholders to address major healthcare challenges using technology and provide long-term strategic value to UK industry.
The Centre aims to create a pathway from curiosity driven science through to clinical application in order to rapidly translate scientific discoveries into healthcare. The Centre will work with the Accelerated Access Review, which in turn works with the Department of Health, to speed up access to innovative drugs, devices and diagnostics for NHS patients.
The CHT brings people together to develop new technologies, creating a pathway from curiosity driven research to clinical applications.
Information about key research areas and case studies will be available soon:
- Sensors & Medical Devices
- New Materials
- Manufacturing and processing
- Human Factors
- Case Studies
CHEATA provides a one-stop shop for developers of medical devices; offering guidance, advice and expertise over the complete translation path into healthcare.
The Centre offers an exciting programme of training including MSc programmes and PhD opportunities.
There will be jointly run training programmes between the University of Nottingham and the NUH with opportunities for PhD students to work in close collaboration with clinicians via the Centre.
