About NIHR Bristol BRC

The National Institute for Health Research Bristol Biomedical Research Centre  (NIHR Bristol BRC) is a partnership between University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Bristol. BRCs conduct innovative translational medical science research to drive through improvements in health and healthcare, and encourage closer working with industry.

The BRC is led by Professor John Iredale (University of Bristol Pro Vice Chancellor for Health) and Professor Jonathan Sterne  with Professor George Davey Smith as Scientific Director.  NIHR Bristol BRC brings together existing research excellence in Cardiovascular Research and Nutrition with three new Research Themes (Mental Health, Perinatal and Reproductive Health and Surgical Innovation). The Research Themes are underpinned by Cross cutting Themes in Translational Population Science and Biostatistics, Evidence Synthesis and Informatics.
