The Advanced Diagnostics and Medical technologies Research Institute (ADMT) promotes a range of healthcare research across the University, NHS and industry partners, to breakdown ‘silos’ and boost the wider research culture.

Led by Professor Jeremy Tree and Dr Jason Webber, the ADMT Research Institute aims to improve early detection, diagnosis & healthcare by fostering collaborations between biology, technology, behavioural science & patient lived experience.

Patients are front and centre of this research – by fostering transdisciplinary collaborations we aim to improve the lives of patients. This could be through development of new biomarkers, reducing time spent in hospitals, or making devices more comfortable for the patient/end user (e.g. nurse). Our research is closely aligned with the World Health Organisation’s definition for Health Technology.
