The National Institute for Health Research Leeds In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative (NIHR Leeds MIC) supports diagnostics developers in the design and validation of new diagnostic tests.

Our multidisciplinary expertise is focused on four clinical themes:

  • Oncology
  • Musculoskeletal Disease
  • Renal Medicine
  • Infection Diagnostics

These areas have significant clinical need in primary and secondary care settings.

Each clinical theme has access to expertise in health economics, clinical trials, informatics and multidisciplinary pathology which are essential components for the development of IVDs and for which many smaller companies will not have in-house teams.

The structure of the NIHR Leeds MIC is based on feedback from industry partners. We provide partners with unrivalled access to world leading medical practitioners, academics, and extensive clinical networks. This makes us uniquely positioned to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of new diagnostics.
