Research affects us all; many of the technologies and therapies that we associate with the delivery of a modern health service have their origin in research. Therefore, research is essential to developing the evidence base for the successful promotion and protection of health and well-being and to modern and effective health and social services.
By its very nature, research can involve an element of risk, both in terms of return on investment and sometimes for the safety and well-being of research participants. Therefore proper governance of research is essential to ensure that the public can have confidence in, and benefit from, quality research in health and community care. Glasgow has a long history of groundbreaking research that has resulted in real benefits to patients around the globe.
The team at R&D are keen to foster this spirit and offer extensive support to new and experienced researchers
