Research and Development

The department is ideally placed for research and development activities having close ties with both clinical and research departments in the University and the Trust. This facility to bridge basic and clinical research with routine clinical practice is the main reason for situating the service within the medical school environment.

Departmental R & D activities may be appreciated by looking through our  publications.
