Expression of Interest Guidance

What we do

If you align with our Innovation Pathway and four clinical themes and are interested in working with us, have an IVD proposition or idea that you would like us to consider, or simply need our guidance, please complete an expression of interest form or get in touch HERE.

What happens once I have submitted an expression of interest?

Submitted requests will be discussed by the NIHR Leeds MIC Management Team to determine

  1. If we can support the request in principle
  2. The most appropriate next steps for your project.


Please make sure your request is clear and detailed as we use the information in the form to determine if we can support you.

If your unmet need or innovation is within our remit, we will contact you for more information before sending your information to the relevant Theme Lead(s) and Methodological Expert(s) to gain their expert opinion.

If the experts can support the unmet need or innovation, we will arrange a call or meeting to discuss further collaboration.

If your unmet need or innovation is not within our remit, we may be able to direct you to alternative support. In some circumstances, one of our partner organisations may be better equipped help and we will, where possible, signpost to other infrastructure.

We aim to respond to all collaboration requests within two weeks.

Please Note

We are not a sales team and will not support innovation if you are only looking for market traction or to have your product adopted into the NHS. We advise you to contact the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) if you are looking for this type of support.
