East Midlands (EM) CLAHRC


Following the decision by the NIHR in 2012 for a second wave of Collaborative Leaderships in Applied Health Research and Care, the team at the Leicester Diabetes Centre, in conjunction with colleagues at the University of Leicester and University Hospitals of Leicester joined forces with colleagues at the former Nottingham, Derby and Lincolnshire CLAHRC to create a new collaboration, known as East Midlands (EM) CLAHRC.

Professor Kamlesh Khunti of the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Leicester, and Co-Director of the LDC, was nominated as Director. Under his inspired leadership, researchers, clinicians, academics and public representatives have established a new and exciting partnership to progress a range of innovative projects in long term conditions.  Under the banner of  ‘ Healthier Living for Longer’, the projects were informed by the key priorities identified by health organisations and communities across the East Midlands, and are aimed at further improving the health of local populations.
