Health Research Methods

graphThe Health Research Methods Unit hosts the Research Design Service (RDS) and Clinical Trials Support Network (CTSN), and aims to improve health and wellbeing by facilitating multi-disciplinary collaboration, supporting the development of health services research projects and hosting large-scale multi-centre clinical trials.

By bringing together clinical teams and academic groups, along with expertise in the development of grant applications and the conduct of clinical trials, the Health Research Methods Unit facilitates the development of powerful working groups who have had considerable success in gaining external funding, delivering clinical trials, and producing high-impact research.
