Institute of Translation, Innovation, Methodology & Engagement
The Institute of Translation, Innovation, Methodology and Engagement (TIME) provides the infrastructure, environment and support to drive translational and innovation opportunities for the School of Medicine.
The Institute of Translation, Innovation, Methodology and Engagement (TIME) complements the activity of the five Research Institutes and the Institute of Medical Education within the School of Medicine. It provides the infrastructure, environment and support to drive translational and innovation opportunities, working closely with internal and external groups and organisations. The Institute strongly encourages and promotes innovative activity and is committed to engagement with communities to ensure maximum impact, ultimately, improving the health, wealth and wellbeing of society.
Translational research is central to achieving the School's priorities. TIME aims to support this mission through effective planning, facilitation & support. The Translation Research Groups have established international reputations in their fields. The TIME Institute will maintain a balance between knowledge-focused research and translational research
By engaging with the commercial sector in a more meaningful way & through embedding innovation in education, the TIME Institute will play an essential role in maximizing the School's potential to attract private sector funding. The School has a successful track record of contributing to society through its teaching, research, students & public engagement activity.
Key in delivering on the Translational agenda will be the encouragement and development of clinically applied research and clinical trials that will be supported by the School of Medicine’s trial units (SEWTU, WCTU & HCTU). The Units will support methodology development both academically and in support of trial design, facilitating the best application of clinical trials.
The School has established several state-of-the-art research facilities in order to support its internationally rated research. Supported by experienced managers and technical staff, they provide an important resource for our research community. These facilities are also made available to external users from academia and industry.
The School success as an academic institution depends in part on the quality of a wide range of professional, administrative and other back-up functions. Through working in close partnership with our academic colleagues, external funders and collaborating organisations, the Support Services aim to support, enable world-class learning, discovery & enterprise.
