The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre (SRMRC) is a national centre for trauma research, taking discoveries from the military frontline to improve outcomes for all patients.
Over the past six years the SRMRC has developed a unique and cohesive multi-disciplinary environment for trauma research; civilian and military basic scientists working alongside clinicians in areas including immunology, endocrinology, microbiology, neuroscience, biomedical engineering and computer engineering.
The aims of the centre are to share the best clinical practice from the military frontline to the NHS and back again. To provide a unique environment where professionals from both the clinical and scientific world work together and translate ground breaking research into novel treatment to improve patient outcomes.
The centre harnesses the expertise from the Ministry of Defence (MoD), University of Birmingham (UoB) and the University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust (UHBFT) to break new ground in the ever changing field of trauma research. With the collection of world class clinicians and academics involved in the centre the research studies are ones that could change the way trauma is treated in the future.
