NIHR Translational Research Partnerships
The NIHR Translational Research Partnerships (TRPs) bring together the UK's leading academic and clinical centres for experimental medicine and translational research into a ready-formed partnership of Universities and NHS hospitals. They provide the life sciences industry with an effective platform for experimental medicine and early development of new drugs and diagnostics.

The OTR receives core-funding from the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre and the University of Cambridge’s HEFCE Higher Education Innovation funding (HEIF).
We carry out research to identify and target the behaviours that lead to chronic disease, to improve early detection of illness and to improve the delivery of health services in community settings; and we teach medical students, clinicians, researchers and educators.
Our research is organised into five research themes: Behaviour and Health, Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes, Cancer, Health Services Research and End of Life Care.
