Institutes and research centres

The School of Computer Science has close links to various research institutes and centres.

Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB)

Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB)

Research at the interface between chemistry and biology is carried out in the MIB, which brings together researchers from a range of disciplines addressing challenges in industrial biotechnology, healthcare and energy.

National Graphene Institute NGI

National Graphene Institue (NGI)

World-leading research into graphene will take place in the new £61 million NGI, due to be completed in 2015. The 7,600 square metre building will house state-of-the-art facilities, including two 'cleanrooms' where scientists can carry out experiments and research without contamination.

Northwest Institute for Bio-Health Informatics (NIBHI)

Northwest Institute for Bio-Health Informatics (NIBHI)

Research into informatics for public health benefit, where computer science and medicine come together in collaboration with centres of excellence in related academia, the NHS and industry in the Northwest Region of England.

Manchester Institute for Population Health

Institute for Population Health (IPH)

Six centres make up the institute so that expertise from the University in population health and health sciences can be used to improve the health and wellbeing for people locally, nationally and internationally.

Manchester Centre for Mesoscience & Nanotechnology CMN

Centre for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology (CMN)

Research into nanotechnology takes place at the CMN, with a wide range of facilities specially designed for advanced multidisciplinary research, and for the fabrication, visualisation and characterisation of nano-structures and devices.

The National Centre for Text Mining NaCTeM

The National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM)

Expertise in text mining is available through NaCTeM, allowing researchers to exploit large volumes of research data that might otherwise be overlooked, through 'natural language processing' and parallel and distributed data mining systems.

Manchester informatics

Manchester Informatics (Mi)

A broad range of disciplines from across the University are brought together by Mi into multidisciplinary communities focussing on major application areas such as mobile health and social care and the digital economy.

Health eResearch Centre (HeRC)

Health eResearch Centre (HeRC)

Researching new ways of harnessing electronic health data to improve care for patients and communities. Partners from academia, the NHS, local authorities and industry combine clinical, social and research data, aiming to identify more effective treatments, improve drug safety, assess risks to public health and study the causes of diseases and disability.

Manchester Centre for Imaging Sciences

Manchester Centre for Imaging Sciences (MIS)

Clinical researchers work with computer scientists, physicists and chemists to develop and apply cutting edge imaging and computational techniques for the understanding of disease, its management and treatment.

Manchester Centre for Health Informatics

Manchester Centre for Health Informatics (MHI)

An informatics research and e-Health innovation hub, with research focused on computational thinking with respect to the health of populations.

Manchester Academiv Health Science Centre (MAHSC)

Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC)

A federation, which interconnects Manchester's existing research activity and research partnerships, offers huge potential and opportunities and will generate health benefits, economic development, enterprise, innovation and wealth creation in Greater Manchester and the wider North West.

Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology

Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCFSB)

The Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB) at the University of Manchester has been awarded £6.4M by the BBSRC and EPSRC to pioneer the development of new experimental and computational technologies in Systems Biology, and their exploitation.

Kathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR)

Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR)

CCSR is an interdisciplinary research centre in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester. CCSR is closely aligned with the discipline area of Social Statistics and has close links with the Institute for Social Change.
