Clinical links

Research activity within the Centre underpins clinical research and translational development in Immunology, Rheumatology, Hepatology (with a recently funded NIHR Biomedical Research Unit), Nephrology and Cancer.

Clinical academics work closely with local Trusts and other agencies including the University of Birmingham Hospital Foundation Trust, the Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital Trusts, the Heart of England Foundation Trust, and the National Blood Transfusion Service.

The Centre also has close links with the Clinical Immunology Service in the School of Immunity and Infection which provides specialist support for clinical academics and expertise and opportunities for the development of new diagnostic assays and biomarker platforms.

Most of the staff within the Centre are based in the Institute of Biomedical Research which is adjacent to the University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and the Wellcome Clinical Research Facility giving access to translational and clinical research.
