£10m project to bring medical jobs to Bradford

The University of Bradford is to become part of a £10 million project to increase medical expertise and boost the number of medical jobs in Yorkshire.

Bradford is one of six universities taking part in the Grow MedTech partnership, which is led by the University of Leeds with the aim of addressing problems that can prevent medical innovations transforming from concept to clinical use.

The project will receive part of its funding from the Higher Education Funding Council for England, which has provided just under £5 million to help the partnership progress.

According to the university, the full £10 million fund will help to support medical and science jobs, which in turn will help these experts to drive their products through the early stages of development and into production. In total, the partnership hopes to being around 20 possibly "life-enhancing" devices to the market in the next three years.

Commenting on the project, Professor John Bridgeman, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research and Knowledge Transfer) at the University of Bradford, stated that the institution is looking forward to receiving support in pushing such important innovations to the mass market.

"This project is a great example of how collaboration between Yorkshire’s universities, including, for example, Bradford’s Digital Health Enterprise Zone, can offer improved health standards for everyone at the same time as boosting local jobs and economic growth," he said.
