The NIHR have recently provided feedback on the final report of the Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative Leeds (DEC Leeds). Highlights from the report include:

• The DEC has undertaken 63 projects and leveraged £42.5m non-commercial and £3.8m commercial funding during the contract period

• The DEC has had a 60% success rate in grant applications

• The DEC has been involved with providing feedback and/or assisting the development of 34 IVDs

• The DEC has actively networked and extended the reach and activities of its PPIE group

We are keen to build on the success of the DEC – if you are a diagnostic developer looking for help in the design and validation of your test, contact us to find out more about how we can help you.
