We take pride in both leading and taking part in collaborations with local, national and international colleagues at a wide range of Universities and NHS Trusts. Please get in touch if you would like to explore a potential collaboration with any of our team members.
Clinical collaboration with North Bristol NHS Trust
The ARU team is based at Southmead Hospital, part of North Bristol NHS Trust, with many of the team also undertaking clinical responsibilities on a day-to-day basis. The success of our clinical research relies on close and longstanding collaboration with colleagues in the hospital, the Research and Development team (who act as sponsor for most of our studies), and the Clinical Research Centre, with whom the ARU research administrators and nurses are affiliated.
The Academic Respiratory Unit has a strong track record of fruitful collaboration with industry partners across a wide range of topics and studies. We are also able to successfully deliver commercially sponsored trials to the highest standard in all of our major disciplines.
