Health Science Scotland was formed several years ago (previously called Scottish Academic Health Science Collaboration) as a partnership of medical universities and their associated NHS Health Boards in Scotland to promote excellence in the field of clinical and translational medicine. It is supported by Scottish Enterprise, the main economic development agency for Scotland, including its international development arm – Scotland Development International.
Health Science Scotland brings together the most senior figures from across Government, academia and the National Health Service and provides an operating structure that reaches across researchers in a wide range of disciplines, has access to all tiers of care, and can address virtually all of the chronic diseases that afflict developed countries.
Our vision is to ‘promote and enhance Scotland as a world-leading hub of innovative health research and development.’
Our objectives are:
- To increase the level and quality of health research and development in Scotland
- To improve and facilitate collaborative and innovative early phase clinical trials between academic and industry partners
- To support NHS Research Scotland (NRS) to deliver high-quality clinical trials in a rapid, efficient and timely manner.
- To increase the number of Scottish patients participating in and benefiting from clinical research
- To increase the speed and adoption of high quality clinical and health improvements
- To generate sustainable economic benefit to Scotland.
