The AHSC is nested within Imperial College Health Partners (ICHP). Imperial College Health Partners, the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) for West London, and all Imperial College AHSC partners are members. The strategic visions of both the AHSC and the AHSN have been aligned to support the progression of research from discovery to implementation and dissemination.

How the AHSC and AHSN relate

As an AHSC, we are focused on early stage translation (T1-T2) within the Trust and with the AHSN, we have an integrated approach to late stage translation and dissemination of innovation (T2-T4).
