PIHR Translation researchers include clinicians who work side-by-side with basic scientists to smooth the pathway between the laboratory and clinical practice, facilitating rapid translation of scientific discoveries into interventions to improve wellbeing.
Examples include the work of our spin-off companies, such as The Vaccine Group which develops vaccines for wild animal populations which harbour diseases that may spread to humans. In a clinical setting, work carried out in Plymouth by our Mantle Cell Lymphoma group has helped to double life expectancy in this condition. Our Brain Tumour Centre of Excellence has taken insights developed on the molecular level of brain tumour growth and taken them through to clinical trials.
Conducting single and multi-centre trials and other well-designed studies from early human drug trials (CTIMPs) to public health and health services complex interventions.Find out more about our cross-cutting clinical trials research
