The Clinical Research Unit runs a number of commercial and NIHR portfolio studies.  The majority of our studies are phase IIb- IV, although we have had some experience with early phase trials and are developing some further exciting opportunities in this area.

In addition to our commercial and NIHR workload, we house an experienced programme team who are leading on a 2 million pound NIHR grant measuring and predicting cataract surgery outcomes. We also have a small number of local investigator led projects where we act as lead site.

Our main research areas are as follows:

  • Medical Retina
  • Uveitis
  • Glaucoma
  • Corneal
  • Vitreo-retinal
  • Retinal Vein Occlusion
  • Diabetic Retinopathy/Macula Odema
