About the project team

Theย National Institute for Health Researchย (NIHR) Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit (BRU) brings together leading researchers from Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and The University of Manchester, to take promising early biomedical research and translate it into patient benefit. The research underway at the NIHR Manchester Musculoskeletal BRU focuses on improved treatment for adults and children with musculoskeletal disorders, including arthritis and connective tissue disease. Working closely with the Public Programmes Team at The Nowgen Centre, Manchester, the BRU places high quality public and patient engagement and involvement in research at the heart of its work, including through its engagement strategy and associated activities since 2012. #DesignforMSKย comes in the final year of the BRU, and aims to provide a high-profile finale to the BRUโ€™s public and patient engagement work. The project will be led by the Public Programmes Team at The Nowgen Centre, Manchester and The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit.
