We deliver world-leading clinical trials of innovative new treatments and diagnostic tools. Our trials directly influence routine clinical practice for the benefit of patients.

Part of Medicine

We work at the forefront of innovative clinical research, taking discoveries from the laboratory into the clinic to provide the treatments and medical interventions of the future. Our team has expertise in the design, conduct and analysis of multi-centre, interventional clinical trials and other well-designed studies. We work in partnership with investigators to deliver high-quality trials that will directly influence routine clinical practice. We are a UK Clinical Research Collaboration registered CTU that receives core funding from Cancer Research
with additional funding from the NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and is part of the South Central NIHR Research Support Service (RSS).

Our research remit is to create change in the NHS for the benefit of patients. We do this by creating robust evidence via randomised trials and well-designed studies.
My research focuses on novel treatment options for cancer. This includes precision medicine approaches for bladder and prostate cancers, mechanisms of cancer therapy resistance, and epigenetic therapeutics.
