Cutting-edge hospital research showcased at public event

Published 27/11/2014

Derby Hospitals will be talking about some of its latest research projects at a public event.

The Spotlight on Research event aims to show people how important medical research is and how they can be involved in the future of healthcare.

Located in the University of Nottingham Medical School at the Royal Derby Hospital, the Trust’s research department is involved in projects which include improving care in diabetes, treatment of diseases, safe drug use for children, infectious diseases, and muscular disability.

Just recently, the Trust was awarded its largest-ever research grant - £2.9 million – to launch one of the UK’s biggest projects into breast cancer.

The work will involve more than 50 hospitals and take more than a decade but could potentially change the way the condition is treated in the future.

It is work like this which will be showcased at the Spotlight on Research event, which will take place on Saturday, November 29, from 10am to 3pm at the Royal Derby Hospital’s Medical School.

Dr Teresa Grieve, the Trust’s Assistant Director for Research and Development, said: “Research is one of Derby Hospitals’ real strengths and there is some amazing work being done across the department.

“We want to try and bring this work to life for people and to highlight the opportunities for patients and volunteers to take an active part in the work.”
