Our research

We undertake pioneering and world-class research into heart and lung disease. Through our research, we develop new treatments, improve care for patients and help to inform decision-making and policy across the NHS and beyond. 

Our research is a collaborative effort and we work with other NHS trusts, universities and industry to ensure the necessary financial and academic support and expertise is available to make significant medical advances.

Research areas have been established representing different specialist areas of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Each research area or consortia brings together: 

  • scientists
  • clinicians
  • industrial partners
  • patients

We are dedicated to involving patients and the public in the design, execution and dissemination of our research and in raising public awareness and interest in our work.
