Institute of Translational Medicine


The Institute of Translational Medicine (ITM) is a place where scientists, researchers, clinicians and industry partners can come together to turn medical science into innovative patient and healthcare system applications, rapidly, rigorously and seamlessly.

Located on the University of Birmingham campus between the Medical School and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, the funding for the ITM, supported by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (now the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy), was the beginning of a major investment plan that will see Birmingham transformed into a global hub of life sciences enterprise.

This cutting-edge development that offers access to world-class laboratory and meeting facilities, University of Birmingham and other university expertise, the Birmingham Health Partners hospitals, and the diverse Birmingham population for robust clinical trials. It will also house device simulation facilities, the first robotics pharmacy dedicated to clinical trials and imaging facilities (COBALT).
