The Centre for Infection Prevention and Management is core funded by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) which is a partnership of organisations working to establish the UK as work leader in clinical research by harnessing the power of the NHS.
The Centre was established following the first round of funding under a UK Clinical Research Collaboration of involving seven funding organisations (BBSRC, MRC, NIHR, Health and Social Care Research and Development, Public Health Agency, Northern Ireland, Chief Scientist Office, Scottish Government Health Directorates, Wales Office of Research and Development for Health and Social Care, Welsh Assembly Government and the Wellcome Trust).
The initiative was set up to bring together new multi-disciplinary research groups focused on high quality collaborative research addressing national research priorities in the field of microbiology and infection.
