Active research studies

COVID-19 research

Most of our regular research is currently on hold due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus). However, as a specialist respiratory Trust we are undertaking research on COVID-19, and some patients, and their families/carers, may be invited to participate over the phone.

If you are contacted, you will be provided with all the information you require to make an informed decision on whether you would like to participate or not. Some of these studies are listed below, under COVID-19.


Details of all our active research studies which are looking for volunteers, with more information about what each project entails and what kind of volunteers would be most suitable.

Early COPD cohort study

COPD is a life-long condition that makes breathing difficult because the airways have been narrowed. People living with COPD will feel out of breath doing everyday tasks such as housework or walking the dog. Though 20% of people with COPD have never smoked and not all smokers develop COPD - it is mainly caused by smoking from early adulthood. Find out more

MIPIC study

The The Mindfulness in Pain in the Chest (MIPIC) study is exploring the use of mindfulness therapy in patients with stable chest pain where the pain has not been found to be arising from the heart. Find out more.

The MISTER trial

The MISTER trial is looking at testing whether minimal equipment pulmonary rehabilitation classes are as effective as those that use specialist equipment in terms of the effect on fitness levels, breathlessness and quality of life in the short and medium term. Find out more

Epidemiology and prognosis in acute myocarditis

Myocarditis is a disease heart muscle caused by inflammation. This study aims to provide a contemporary, population-level assessment of the true clinical burden of myocarditis and how this may have changed over the last 20 years. Find out more.


See details of the Trust’s performance for all clinical trials reported to the NIHR, for the Initiation and Delivery of studies in the period from 1 April 2019 to 30 September 2020.
