EMI Training Cambridge UniversityThe University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine formulated a new initiative called the Experimental Medicine Training Initiative (EMI) in 2015.  This programme is supported by the University of Cambridge in partnership with the Cambridge University Hospitals, NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre and Industry Partners AstraZeneca/MedImmune and GSK, and it is designed to build capacity in Experimental Medicine (EM).

The development of new drugs and innovative therapies increasingly relies on experimental medicine studies in humans, such as obtaining early proof-of-concept, understanding pathophysiology, biomarker development/validation, and evaluating techniques for subject stratification.

Currently there are a lack of trained individuals to design and deliver such studies, which  impacts on drug development. Academia and pharmaceutical R&D are keen to collaborate to address this translational research gap and in doing so, deliver high quality Experimental Medicine projects.


The EMI programme provides high quality training for motivated, bright and enthusiastic clinicians and clinical scientists in the design and execution of Experimental Medicine studies, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to lead Experimental Medicine studies in the future.
