About Us

The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network leads, catalyses and drives co-operation, collaboration and productivity between academia, industry, health and care providers and commissioners, and citizens, and accelerates the adoption of innovation to generate continuous improvement in the region’s health and wealth.

This will be achieved in a collaborative environment in which member organisations are mutually supportive and in which the technology-rich West Midlands’ life sciences community is fully integrated and generating additional investment. Innovation will be spread at scale and pace regionally, nationally and internationally. WMAHSN, its partners and the public will celebrate the region’s success as a centre for innovation, health and wealth and as the first digitally-enabled health economy in England. The improved generation and adoption of innovation will benefit the economy by giving the region’s academic institutions and life sciences industry a competitive advantage.
