Translational Health Sciences (Clinical) MD
Translational Health Sciences is part of the Bristol Medical School. Staff and students are based in high-quality research and clinical settings across the city, including the Bristol Royal Infirmary, Southmead Hospital and the advanced laboratory facilities in the Dorothy Hodgkin Building. The school undertakes laboratory-based, translational and applied research, fostering a high level of collaboration between staff and students. It comprises a mix of basic and medically trained scientists, enabling high-quality collaborative translational and healthcare research using a wide range of techniques - from molecular biology to epidemiology.
Our work focuses on clinical research and a significant part of this has translated to clinical trials that are led by the school. These include ongoing trials related to:
childhood vaccination and anti-microbial therapy
treatment of obesity in childhood and adult life
therapies for diabetic neuropathy
treatment of early Alzheimer's
neurosurgical approaches to Parkinson's
immunotherapy and bone marrow stem cell therapy in multiple sclerosis
interventions for treatment of neonatal brain injury
type 1 diabetes prevention
improvement of outcomes from joint replacement
novel methods of glucocorticoid treatment in critical illness and inflammatory disorders
treatment of nephrotic syndrome
management of pleural disease
These studies are complemented by translational clinical studies, engaging both clinical and basic scientists.
Extensive national and international research collaborations contribute to a first-class working environment in which to undertake interdisciplinary research and teaching.
