Research and Development
Our Research and Development Department is part of the Medical Directorate. We are based in the Clinical Translational Research & Innovation Centre (C-TRIC), which is located on the Altnagelvin Hospital site. Our goal is to support and promote high quality clinical research for the health benefits of our population and to play our part in the delivery of research studies, and to align with the regional research and development (R&D) strategy for the Health and Social Care (HSC) sector.
The role of the department is to support and facilitate researchers to undertake high quality research and to provide research governance to ensure the interests of our participants, researchers and staff adhere to the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research.
Our service is directed mainly at external researchers/applicants/sponsors of health research studies; to our staff who wish to conduct studies related to their own specialty/disease area of interest; as well as to the public who may wish to get involved in health research related activity, locally or through the regional group of representatives that consider public involvement enhancing research (PIER).

We encourage public participation in research, and this
means involving people in all aspects of the research process as partners rather than as research subjects – click here.
