Professor John GoodacreDirector of Health Engagement and Innovation Team (HEIT)
Professor John Goodacre MD PhD is Associate Dean for Engagement and Innovation in Health & Medicine, Director of the Health Engagement & Innovation Team, and Professor of Musculoskeletal Science. He is a member of the Lancaster Health Innovation Campus Development Group and Board, and of the operational exec group of the Northern Health Science Alliance. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians.
Interdisciplinary programme of research and innovation in musculoskeletal health
He leads a programme of NHS / University collaborative research and innovation in Musculoskeletal Health, focusing on:
- Work and Health, as part of which he leads Lancaster's partnership in the ARUK/MRC Centre for Musculoskeletal health and Work
- Acoustic emission as an assessment tool and biomarker for knee osteoarthritis (MRC-funded)
Engagement and Innovation in Health & Medicine
He provides leadership for strategy development, planning and delivery of the University’s programme of knowledge exchange (KE) in health and medicine, and am responsible for delivery of the Faculty’s HEIF budget to support this through pan-University engagement and strategic partnerships with the Health sector, including the NHS. This work enables the sector to benefit from the University's knowledge and expertise in Health, whilst at the same time enriching the University's research and teaching in this field.
He provides academic leadership for the planning and development of the new Health Innovation Campus, and for linking the Innovation Campus to other public sector infrastructure developments across Lancashire & South Cumbria, with the aim of developing a distinctive system for driving and supporting innovation for population health.
He also provides academic leadership for the Health Engagement and Innovation Team, and for the Lancaster Health Hub, which is a formal partnership between the University and local NHS organisations to support collaborative research and innovation.
