Why we do research

We do research to improve healthcare for the benefit of patients.

Our broad aims are to work with our clinicians, academic and industrial partners in order to contribute towards the development of new treatments and medicines, prevent illnesses, improve quality of life, and improve the understanding of the causes and developments of medical conditions.

Clinical research is at the heart of BSUH because it is the only way that we can continually improve treatment for patients, and understand how to focus NHS resources where they will be most effective
