As a leading teaching hospital, clinical research is of vital importance to the development of better health and care for our patients, as well as to the development of the next generation of doctors, nurses and health professionals.
We are at the forefront of research into new treatments for COVID-19. Find out the latest information on our COVID-19 research pages.
Better for patients
We know that the outcomes for our patients are better in organisations which are active in clinical research. This means better care for patients who are participating in research trials as well as for all patients who are treated here.
NUH hosts hundreds of clinical research studies every year, including complex clinical trials. More than 300 doctors, nurses and health professionals are involved in clinical research, ensuring that the benefits of new treatments, drugs and therapies translate from the research laboratory directly into clinical practice.
Through research we will make a real and lasting difference to the quality of clinical care provided by NUH, building on existing strengths and exploiting new opportunities. We do this through partnerships which support research locally, nationally and internationally.
