PESSupporting Researchers 

As part of the Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (MBRC), Nowgen contributes to high-quality biomedical and translational research by supporting the principles and practice of effective patient and public engagement and involvement. All our work draws on MBRC research themes, and includes MBRC researchers.

We have:

Led the development of the MBRC strategy for ‘Working with patients and members of the public’

Mapped current public engagement activities within the MBRC, which compiled the views of senior researchers on:

  • What kinds of involvement and engagement work they and their teams carry out
  • The challenges of involvement and engagement work and what could be done to best support these activities in the MBRC

Provided training and created resources to support 250 researchers to integrate public and patient engagement into their work. Click on the following link to find out more:
