The National Institute for Health Research Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre (NIHR SRMRC) is a national centre for trauma research, taking discoveries from the military frontline to improve outcomes for all patients in the UK.

It brings together pioneering advances in surgery and infection by both military and civilian scientists as well as clinicians to deliver excellence in innovation in a complex area of acute care.

Launched in 2011, the centre shares its knowledge gained from treating seriously injured military and civilian patients, with the wider NHS. Based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB), the centre harnesses expertise from the Ministry of Defence (MoD), University of Birmingham (UoB), and QEHB and has been funded over five years with a total of £15 million investment (£5 million QEHB and UoB; £5 million MoD; £5 million NIHR).
