We offer an extensive, internationally recognised breadth of knowledge and expertise in research and development (R&D), from basic research through novel laboratory-developed assays to extensive clinical trial portfolios.

Research and development is driven by expert clinicians and healthcare scientists connected to a network of teaching hospitals, national healthcare bodies, academic institutions, industrial partners and charitable foundations. Our staff have leading roles in biobanking, research and teaching, both locally and overseas.

We have a firm commitment to maintaining and supporting existing and new research and development activities, providing a robust framework to successfully deliver next-generation developments into clinical practice.

We are also proud that research and development plays an important role for our staff when working towards higher education qualifications, where projects make up a component of the award. These  projects often contribute to developments in the clinical service.
