The Institute of Translational Medicine

The ITM is based in the heritage building at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The centre was developed as a hub for research and innovation, with co-location of key personnel, research groups, the SRMRC, MD-Tec and the Centre for Rare Diseases. 

The ITM has meeting rooms, conference facilities, a simulation suite, laboratory and testing facilities. The centre provides an opportunity for industry to meet with clinicians, research and innovation advisers under one roof, exploring opportunities for working together to evaluate new technologies and biomedical devices bringing innovation to healthcare provision in the NHS.

The HaPPeN team moved their Birmingham office to the ITM when it opened in 2015 and since then the facilities and support have enabled a rapid growth with delivery of a high class portfolio of clinical trials.
