Work of Research and Innovation teams highlighted in Annual Report

Posted 2nd November 2022

The latest Annual Report from the The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre's Research and Innovation team has now been published.

Running to 34 pages, the report details the huge amount of work being done in Research and Innovation (R&) across the Trust, from ground-breaking clinical trials to studies on how the nursing workforce coped in the pandemic, innovations that are improving life for patients and staff, a new vision for Clatterbridge's Biobank and much more.

R&I is at the heart of the Trust’s mission to create new and better treatments and care for patients to improve outcomes for them. The Trust is part of a Clinical Research Facility and Biomedical Research Centre and its R&I teams work hard to continually improve how world-leading research and pioneering innovations are planned and delivered.

You can read about what is being achieved in the report, which is now on the Trust website here.

Dr Gillian Heap, Director of Research and Innovation Operations, said: “I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to this Annual Report or had their fantastic work featured in it – it shows the strength and depth of the activities right across R&I. The fact that all this was achieved in the face of challenges brought by the pandemic is even more remarkable.

“But despite all these notable achievements, we continue to be ambitious, and the partnership recently announced with The Royal Marsden in their Biomedical Research Centre will bring another step change in our activities.

“This new status and collaboration will mean we will be able to do more and achieve more for our patients – and hopefully we can also be a catalyst for even greater accomplishments in Research and Innovation right across our city and region.”
