Impact

Our research activity has impact in three major areas:

  1. Translational research bridges key gaps between invention, evaluation and adoption, driving significant changes in medical practice and clinical guidelines.
  2. Our ambitious patient engagement programmes link researchers with patients and the public from early research stages identifying important questions to advanced stages of adoption of research findings.
  3. Our commercial collaborations are accelerating the pace of drug and treatment development. We are working with firms in the UK and internationally, creating successful spin-out companies and transforming intellectual property into valuable innovations.
