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 NIHR 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.
