The NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is part of the NIHR and hosted by Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with The University of Sheffield

Funded by the National Institute for Health and Care Research, we conduct research across four primary themes: 

We are dedicated to improving patient treatment and care in areas where there are currently unmet clinical needs to enhance the quality of life of people within Sheffield and afar. Our strategy is based on the over-arching principles of Impact, Excellence, Inclusion, Collaboration and Effectiveness.

In order to find new treatments, we first need to answer the following questions: 

 NIHR Translational Research Collaborations

NIHR Translational Research Collaborations (TRCs) are collaborative groups of world-leading investigators established via NIHR Biomedical Research Centres with significant expertise in specific disease areas. The TRCs enable NIHR to work together with industry, charities and other stakeholders to develop and deliver early-phase translational research at scale. 

The NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is part of the NIHR Dementia TRC, NIHR Respiratory TRC and the BHF/NIHR Cardiovascular Partnership.

 NIHR BioResource

The NIHR BioResource recruits and maintains a resource of data and samples donated by over 200,000 people. Researchers can use this resource to call up potential participants for studies to understand the links between genes, the environment, health and disease. 

The NIHR Sheffield Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) hosts one of the NIHR BioResource centres across England.
