University of Leicester, with Northampton and Kettering Group, is committed to enhancing the partnership between academia and the NHS in Northamptonshire.

In April 2017 NIHR Biomedical Research Centre commenced, a collaboration between University of Leicester, University of Loughborough and University Hospitals of Leicester. The BRC brings together the work of Respiratory Medicine, Cardiovascular Science, Diet, Lifestyle and Physical Activity.
