The UH Bristol Research and Innovation Department is located on
level 3 of the Education and Research Centre.
We are led by our Director of Research, Professor David Wynick,
and our Head of Research and Innovation and Deputy Director of
Research, Diana Benton.
We deal with all aspects of clinical research and development,
including R&D approvals, setting up studies, commercial and
non-commercial research, grant funding, and innovation and
intellectual property. Please contact us early on if you are
thinking of taking part in a research study, applying for grant
funding, or have an innovation project.
Our researchers lead and contribute to world class research
which helps us to understand diseases better and develop new
treatments for the benefit of patients and the NHS.
Providing healthcare, research and teaching of the highest
quality to improve outcomes for patients is at the centre of what
we do at UH Bristol. Research is embedded in the care we provide,
and we aim to offer the chance of taking part in research to as
many of our patients as we can.
We know that the research evidence we gather must be used if we
are to improve patient care. As the regional specialist teaching
hospital, we are committed to working as part of Bristol Health Partners and the West of England
Academic Health Sciences Network to bring research findings
into practice and improve the health of our city and the region.
Our aim is to increase the number of studies we can offer to our
patients, and to help them understand more about research and what
it means to the NHS.
