Improving trauma care and outcomes for patients through translational research built on military, NHS and scientific partnership.
Leading the way in the development of new treatments
Multiple studies are run from this Centre all year round by scientists and academics, combined with a team of dedicated research nurses and administrative staff. Through this, the Centre is able to tackle some of the biggest questions in trauma.
Making a valuable contribution
The Surgical Reconstruction Microbiology Research Centre also benefits from its own Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) group. This is made up of former patients who have either suffered trauma or burn injury or have spent time in critical care as well as carers and members of the public.
Jointly funded by the NIHR and the Ministry of Defence
The Centre is jointly funded by the NIHR – the nation’s largest funder of health and care research – and the Ministry of Defence, the British government department in charge of putting into place the Government’s defence policy and the headquarters of the British Armed Forces.
Meet the team
The multi-disciplinary and multi-organisational team that support the NIHR Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre is divided into clinical, scientific, management and PPI/E.
