For Investigators

Our Team provides comprehensive services to researchers who would like to undertake research in Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (DHFT). We also support investigators who would like to initiate their own research Sponsored by DHFT. 

We will work with you and provide you with comprehensive support throughout the study lifecycle.  Whether you are participating in a study lead elsewhere or if you are running the study from DHFT, we will work with you directly, signpost you when relevant, and ensure that your study is set up in a timely manner ensuring adherence to all relevant rules and regulations.

The following pages describe our services, the support departments you may need to run your study, details on how to design a research study and how to gain permission to start your study at DHFT.  As our team will work with you throughout the study there is additional information regarding activities and requirements until the study ends.
