The main impact of this Network+ will be its benefit to patients and translating research out of the laboratory towards patient benefit. The ultimate aim will be better treatment and better patient outcomes, achieved by bringing together a wide-ranging and multidisciplinary community and pump-priming collaborations. Moreover, it will produce a vibrant, energised community who will actively work together and start to train the next generation to do the same.

The impact of the Network+ will be measured in terms of its impact on its stakeholders in the public and private sectors as well as in the academic community.
