RNOH conducts a wide range of studies from simple observational studies to new innovative highly interventional treatment studies. Our studies are usually only opened to patients who are treated at the RNOH.
The list below provides some examples of studies taking place locally, it is not an exhaustive list of all our studies.
We support locally developed as well as externally developed studies, both commercial and academic. Many of our studies are included on the National Institute of Health Research Gateway.
