    Get involved in research design

    We want people to help us design and conduct our research. We believe this kind of active input (patient public involvement or PPI) makes our research better.

  • Research at UCLH

    UCLH is famous for its world-class research with hundreds of studies happening at any one time and some 12,000 of our patients taking part in clinical trials.

    This means our patients have access to some of the most cutting-edge treatments and we are able to offer many patients the opportunity to take part in trials.

    How do I get involved in research at UCLH?

  • What kind of research does UCLH carry out?

    Some of our research is experimental medicine, which looks at the causes of disease, how certain treatments work and whether they are safe. Some of our patients have been the first in the world to receive treatments.

    We also carry out clinical trials which test the effectiveness of new drugs in a large number of people. This will be to see if a new treatment really is better than current

  • Research questions we ask...

    We have research happening in most disease areas. For instance, studies looking at cancer treatments, neurology surgery, critical care, infection and stroke rehabilitation, to name but a few.

  • UCLH Performance in approving and recruiting to research studies

    NHS service providers like UCLH produce performance data on initiating and delivering clinical research, in particular on how long it takes for a clinical trial to start. The data shows the length of time between the date when researchers first applied for NHS approval (called NHS Permission) to carry out a clinical trial and the date when the first participant was recruited to the trial. Information is also provided on trials that have finished, showing whether the trial achieved its anticipated total recruitment target.
