Leeds’ is becoming a global leader in providing 21st century health and care. Personalised medicine and health is at the heart of our approach, with services, support, technologies and treatments increasingly targeted to meet the unique needs of an individual, based on a greater understanding of their personal and physical condition and context.
The Leeds Centre for Personalised Medicine and Health, led by the University of Leeds, drives this ambition, utilising the city’s multiple assets to go deeper, further and faster to embed the personalisation agenda.
The Centre puts patients and the public at the heart of everything we do. It matches excellence in science and innovation, both across the city and beyond, with an understanding of patient and population needs. It helps to connect leading academics, industry and the whole health and care ecosystem to identify how personalised approaches can lead to transformative solutions.
Our particular strength lies in our whole-system, city wide ethos. The Centre looks across the spectrum of how health and care is becoming more personalised and draws out the best and most complementary interventions. We use education, research, business and practice together to make the biggest difference to people’s life chances.
