This year sees the opening of the £25 million Stoller Biomarker Discovery Centre and the Medical Research Council Pathology Node on the Central Manchester Trust site.

Hypertension is a problem seen in around one third of the adult population of the United Kingdom. Whilst there are a number of drugs available, an individual’s response to a particular antihypertensive medication is unpredictable.  The AIM HY consortium is working towards seeking a genetic basis for personalising the treatment for hypertension and the presentation will outline progress that has been made in this area.
