The Health eResearch Centre (HeRC) is a partnership between four universities, the NHS and a network of industry partners. Working together they form a powerhouse of health data science operating across the North of England and are a founding member of the UK-wide Farr Institute.
Using a combination of public health information and technology HeRC delivers over 25 multidisciplinary research projects that are at the forefront of a new science, the science of Health Informatics.
Along with developing the methods to deliver world-leading research, HeRC is helping to build a pipeline of talent for this emerging sector by training the next generation of Health Data Scientists.
We work with and consult the public about the work we do at the Health eResearch Centre.
