Who we are

Nowgen Centre
We are a not-for-profit, NHS-based organisation which: 

  • Provides high-quality public involvement and engagement service via our Public Programmes team 
  • Offers a range of meeting and event facilities at the heart of the Manchester clinical-academic campus

Public Programmes

Our aim is simply to involve and engage people from all walks of life in biomedical and health-related research. 

We do this by providing strategic advice, developing and implementing public involvement and engagement projects, and undertaking quantitative and qualitative research in this area. 

We also coach others on how to best integrate public involvement into their work.

Meeting and Events Facilities

Our experienced events team provides a comprehensive service, supporting your individual requirements, leaving you free to concentrate on your event.

Our conference and meeting facilities can accommodate seminars, functions and smaller meetings. 

We also have a computer training suite, video conferencing facilities and a teaching and demonstration laboratory.
