NIHR Children and Young People MedTech Co-operative (NIHR CYP MedTech) is one of the 11 MedTech and In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operatives (MICs) funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). NIHR CYP MedTech is the only MIC dedicated to child health and paediatrics.
NIHR CYP MedTech is hosted by Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and directed by Professor Paul Dimitri.
The Core Team (Director, Programme Manager, Project Managers, Business Development Manager) are responsible for co-ordinating and overseeing all NIHR CYP MedTech projects and activities, and are based at Sheffield Children’s.
We work across NHS and NIHR infrastructure, including with the other NIHR MICs, NIHR Local Clinical Research Networks, Academic Health Science Networks, NIHR Biomedical Science Centres, and Generation R (an NIHR funded national network of Young People’s Advisory Groups).
