Research and Development

Innovation and excellence in health and care

Research is central to CUH’s identity as a leading NHS hospital and development as an academic research centre.

Cambridge is home to one of the richest pools of clinical and scientific knowledge and expertise not only in the country but in the world. At CUH this is reflected in clinical teams working in the hospital alongside world-class scientists from a wealth of internationally renowned organisations such as the Medical Research Council (MRC) which shares the hospital campus.

Doctors and scientists collaborate across disciplines and specialties and it is this co-existence of experience and expertise that fosters translational research – turning basic science into new drugs and new therapies giving patients innovative and excellent care.

For researchers

The Trust is responsible for overseeing all the biomedical research which takes place on our campus in so far as it involves our patients, their data or tissues, or where it uses NHS facilities and staff at CUH.

For the public

Cambridge University Hospitals are dedicated to making biomedical research both relevant and accessible to the general public, to patients and their carers. There are a number of ways in which you can get involved.

Cambridge clinical trials unit (CCTU)

The CCTU works with researchers to conduct the highest quality clinical research, addressing important questions relating to human health and disease.
