SPARK is a joint research service which brings together the Liverpool Health Partners’ (LHP) NHS organisations and Universities research support functions to facilitate and deliver high quality, world class health research.

LHP SPARK has a dedicated research team that can provide support and guidance during the course of a research project. Consequently, SPARK’s unique collaboration and infrastructure provides a streamlined research support service and a ‘Single Point of Access’ for Industry and Researchers.

LHP SPARK is a ‘one-stop shop’ for the full process from grant applications through to study set. This provides a streamlined, centralised system to support investigators through the full cycle of study set-up.
