Research partnerships

We believe the more we collaborate the more we create.
Sonia Gandhi with Rickie Patani


We aim to bring together people and ideas to create new opportunities in research.

We work with our founders, and other research institutes and universities in the UK and internationally to identify areas where we can work together to answer research questions, tackle specific health problems or share resources. We also support our researchers to collaborate widely.
