Our research and development

Research helps us develop new treatments, understand and prevent illnesses, and improving our patient’s quality of life.

Our research often takes place in laboratories, and we occasionally ask NHS patients and staff to participate.


Our Open Studies 

We have a number of studies running throughout 2019/20 and beyond, and we regularly publish an update report on our open studies. Contact our team if you would like to know more about a particular study.
