Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest healthcare research institutions
With annual research income in excess of £15m, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals is amongst the largest healthcare research institutions in the UK. As a result of the pioneering research undertaken in partnership with the University of Sheffield and Hallam University our patients have the benefit of the very latest new technologies and therapies.
We are fortunate to have fostered strong relationships between research, clinical practice and industry over a number of years and Trust has been responsible for pioneering advances in medical technology and treatments that are now regularly employed in hospitals around the country.
Translational research and implementation initiatives include the Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative operating nationally to bring technological solutions to patients’ needs, and the NIHR Collaborations for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire, uniting 18 organisations to transfer research findings into practical patient care in the management of long-term conditions.
Research strengths range from basic laboratory science through to the application of research at the bedside and in the home. A joint Clinical Research Office with the University of Sheffield supports a dynamic hub of research and innovation expertise. Researchers conduct their work in dedicated world-class facilities. A growing group of Academic Directorates combine research closely with their teaching of health professionals and their clinical work. The involvement of patients and the public is central to all our research activities.
Key research areas include neuroscience, cardiology, inflammation and immunity, rheumatology, bone metabolism, cancer, respiratory medicine, communicable diseases, diabetes, endocrinology and oral and dental research.
