Launch of Margaret Peters Centre
The Margaret Peters Centre was launched at the Institute for Translational Medicine, University Birmingham on 13th November 2019. This virtual centre is an initiative between NIHR ARC West Midlands and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. The centre will seek to bridge the gap between the routine analysis and processing of data in hospitals, and the interesting questions that exist in clinical and academic teams. It will do so by bringing together the expertise of managers, clinicians and academics with questions that can be answered through the analysis of available data. The centre aims to conduct research using both local and national hospital datasets through health informaticians based within the Trust.
