For industry


We are keen to work with new and existing industry colleagues on commercial studies, and have broad experience of partnerships through existing collaborations. Our Cardiology Department oversee 20 commercial studies, and our Haematology Department is managing 18 studies. We strive to set up commercial studies as efficiently as possible, and deliver studies to time and target. 99% of our studies meet or exceed the NIHR initiation target of 30 days from complete submission to Research and Development Approval.
