West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN)

The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) drives collaboration and productivity between academia, industry, healthcare providers and local citizens.

Through fostering a collaborative environment and supporting organisations across the region, the WMAHSN ensures Greater Birmingham’s life science community is fully integrated and demonstrating an internationally renowned competitive advantage. Through its networks, the WMAHSN accelerates the pace and scale of technology-led innovation to generate continuous improvement to the region’s businesses and its health economy.

WMAHSN helps start-ups and SMEs access funding and finance opportunities, find potential investors and locate international opportunities. WMAHSN also offers expert specialist advice and practical tools and techniques to help companies access new markets; aiding engagement with stakeholders and helping them understand and respond to clients’ needs. It also offers access to research and evaluation, with collaborative networks disseminating evidence to encourage uptake of ideas and collaboration amongst local businesses.

Professor Michael Sheppard, Chair of the WMAHSN, said: “Accelerating patient access to new innovative medicines and technologies is at the heart of the life sciences sector in Greater Birmingham. The region’s unique infrastructure offers an integrated research and innovation platform that spans discovery, development, and implementation into clinical practice and ultimately evaluation. Birmingham is one of very few cities that can translate discoveries made in the laboratory into clinical practice at such pace, with a scale and efficiency that is unrivalled in the UK.”
