What we do
We work to transform health and care for all through evidence-based innovation. We focus on health and care challenges where we believe we can make the greatest impact; from health policy to medical robotics, the breadth of what we do is one of our defining strengths. By blending the varied expertise of our Centres of Excellence, our multi-disciplinary Institute has the agility to respond to emerging needs as they arise.
To accelerate transformation in health and care, our people work across the entire innovation cycle. We…
- Identify areas in need of innovation
- Build the capacity and expertise needed to tackle global health issues through education and training
- Generate the evidence base for solutions that could address the needs we identify
- Develop and evaluate new systems, products and policies that seek to improve global health and care, including through first-in-human trials
- Translate and disseminate these approaches across real-world settings, bringing benefits for patients, professionals and health systems alike.
