Our Activities

The Pankhurst coordinates a range of activities to meet our aims. Below you can find our current projects.

The Research and Innovation (R&I) Health Accelerator

Through this project, SMEs will be able to access expertise and support including information about navigating the health and care system, developing value propositions, ethics and regulatory advice and access to university-wide expertise.

The Toronto-Manchester Joint Translational Centre for Digital Health

The Toronto-Manchester Joint Translational Centre for Digital Health is a collaboration of University of Toronto and University of Manchester. Its mission is to advance Canadian and UK Digital Health, through development of technologies, policies, and service models. Its impact is commercialization, translation of theory into policy, and strengthened health services.

Innovation Catalogue

As a part of Pankhurst’s key activities, we will develop an understanding of the research assets and capabilities of the University and the Greater Manchester Health innovation ecosystem to broker new connections with key stakeholders including businesses and develop the Health Innovation Catalogue. This will expand and develop the University’s industry network and build the potential offering of and impact of the university Health technology research.
